Patricia K. Bostian / Central Piedmont Community College

We seek intelligent critical articles written in a clear, readable style that offer our readers thoughtful, useful, pedagogically sound, and innovative ideas for teaching American literature. We are also interested in articles about new American authors or lesser known authors who haven't seen much study, particularly in ways that they could add to students' experiences of American literature. All articles go through a blind peer review process with editorial staff making all final publishing decisions. Submission Deadline: May 31, 2019.

SPECIAL ISSUE: Horror in the American Literature Classroom. A special issue devoted to works (canonical or new to the literature classroom) that are imbued with the supernatural. How do we teach the supernatural? Is genre fiction classroom fodder? How do supernatural works hold up in a world that has plenty of non-supernatural fears? We are looking for works about authors who are not normally associated with horror and those who are. New twists on old tropes, re-visioning what it means to be haunted. Submission Deadline: October 31, 2019.

Submit articles or proposals with an abstract and bio to Patricia.Bostian@cpcc.edu at Central Piedmont Community College.
