The electronic peer-reviewed English Studies Forum seeks innovative
creative and critical writing. The editors of ESF want to feature engaging

manifestations of games, sport, leisure, and/or laughter as part of

The "Play" forum is scheduled to debut in our May 2004 issue. ESF will
publish its inaugural issue in January 2004, but the editors plan to

• The Postmodern Imagination and Beyond
• Image, Story, and Conversation

poetry, drama, creative nonfiction, theory, and/or criticism. Books

reviewers should contact the editor with a cv and description of their

Electronic submissions (MS Word) are preferred. Critical papers should
conform to M.L.A. style and include a bibliography, if appropriate.
