Call for Papers! NOVEL: A Forum on Fiction

Deadline: Ongoing

Novel: A Forum on Fiction is accepting submissions. Founded in 1967 at Brown
University, Novel is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the best new
criticism and theory in novel studies. After several decades under the editorship of Nancy
Armstrong, Kevin McLaughlin took over as the chief editor in Summer 2023.
Novel holds to these general principles:

  1. as long as there have been novels, there has been a need for critical
    scholarship to explain how novels should and do make and evaluate the
    foundational categories of modern life.
  2. so long as novels continue to be written, literate populations will continue
    to dwell within categories inaugurated by its forms.
    We welcome submissions that address one or more of these concerns and use a
    novel or group of novels to do so. The essays we favor are relatively self-
    conscious about the theoretical and historical framework that informs
    their critical
    argument, so long as that argument uses fiction to challenge the historical
    narrative or theoretical assumptions that are brought to bear on it.
    Submissions should be between 7000-9000 words (inclusive of footnotes but
    excluding works cited), in accordance with MLA style (9th ed.).
    Please send submissions and inquiries to
