All submitted material must include either an e-mail address or a self-addressed envelope ( SAE
) with loose postage adequate for a letter notifying you of our decision. All manuscripts must be
submitted in triplicate, and must NOT bear the author's name or any other identifying
information about the author. This enables our readers to review manuscripts blindly. We cannot
begin the review process until we have received all three blind copies. Please include a cover
letter listing the titles of the submitted works, and detailing all relevant contact information for
the author, including an e-mail address if available. Each individual copy of essays or
unpublished material should be stapled. The maximum word limit for any one manuscript is
10,000 words (approx. 25 single-spaced pages, 12 point font). Bibliographies and documented
material should follow the MLA Style Manual (most recent edition). We currently do not accept
submissions via e-mail or fax transmission from within the United States. Contributors should
refer to the Callaloo website, contributor’s guidelines, for additional information about
submissions: Please address any inquiries concerning the call
