Characters or ideas within texts that fail to succeed

Guilty pleasures

Creative fiction or nonfiction pieces investigating the concept of failure

albeit may be found at www.albeitjournal.com and is a new internet literary journal focusing on the intersection between traditional scholarship and teaching documents.

Each issue of albeit will feature articles, lesson plans, book reviews, and a syllabus.
