CFP: English Studies Forum: "The Individual in War" (no deadline noted; e-journal issue)
The electronic peer-reviewed English Studies Forum seeks innovative creative and critical writing. The editors of ESF want to feature engaging critical essays, as well as truly creative and experimental workâ€”fiction, poetry, and nonfictionâ€”that takes formal risks.
The editors are currently soliciting manuscripts for a forum on "The Individual in War." This forum invites submissions that deal with the literature of war and its relation to the experience of individuals (rather than, say, "great men" or "troops"). Manuscripts might deal with literature, history, film, or other subjects in the humanities, where the primary focus is on how single individuals relate to war in practice or in retrospect.
"The Individual in War" forum is scheduled to debut in our May 2004 issue. ESF will publish its inaugural issue in January 2004, but the editors plan to regularly update existing forum sites and we will continue to accept submissions for all forum sites, including:
â€¢ The Postmodern Imagination and Beyond
â€¢ Image, Story, and Conversation
Each issue of ESF will include 10-20 substantial reviews of fiction, poetry, drama, creative nonfiction, theory, and/or criticism. Books reviewed may (but need not) engage with a featured forum. Interested reviewers should contact the editor with a cv and description of their interests.
Electronic submissions (MS Word) are preferred. Critical papers should conform to M.L.A. style and include a bibliography, if appropriate.
