Call for Papers — Studies in Crime Writing

Newberry College is pleased to invite submissions for the inaugural issue of Studies in Crime Writing, which will appear in Spring 2017. Studies in Crime Writing is a peer-reviewed, open-access, online scholarly journal dedicated to crime writing, including true crime, thrillers, prison writing, detective fiction, and noir. The journal's focus is on written work, rather than film, computer games, or other electronic media. Beyond this, there is no fixed topic for the first issue. We are open to a variety of theoretical and scholarly approaches, and to bibliographic and textual scholarship as well.

Articles should be prepared according to the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (3rd edition), and should range from 4000-8000 words in length. As well, each submission should begin with an abstract of not more than 200 words. Submission deadline is 15 August 2016.
