 Indiana English is a competitive, peer-reviewed academic journal where faculty-scholars and graduate students alike can publish literary criticism, creative works, pedagogical scholarship, or other work in their fields. The journal is published online and is open access. Indiana English encourages submissions on the role of English studies in the Midwest but will consider submissions on any topic related to English literature and criticism, linguistics, or pedagogy. We also publish original creative work (fiction, poetry, creative and literary nonfiction, and photography).
