Points of Entry, a journal dedicated to publishing critical examinations
on and original pieces of narrative literary journalism, is seeking book
reviews on examples of the genre for its third issue, due out in Fall
2004. The reviews should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words in length. The
deadline for the next issue is May 1, 2004, but reviews will be accepted
on a continuing basis for future issues. The journal encourages narrative
writing in journalism by serving as an arena for exchange between
journalists, teachers, students and storytellers. The reviews may be on
either contemporary or historical examples of the genre. If historical,
reviews should reflect at least a passing familiarity with the critical
perspectives on a work, as well as contribute new insights. In addition,
thoughtful reviews of existing published scholarship or other critical
perspectives on the form will also be considered. Essays may be informal
or formal, but should bear in mind in tone and style the journal’s
purpose as a meeting ground for different perspectives. Hardcopy
submissions should be sent to: John C. Hartsock, Book Review Editor,
Points of Entry, Department of Communication Studies, SUNY Cortland, P.O.
