Submission Guidelines

For more than fifty years, Genre has published smart, professional, original academic essays on topics involving literary and cultural texts and practices, the disciplines that study them, and the modes of understanding and interpretation to which they give rise.

Submissions should follow the author-date guidelines in The Chicago Manual of Style, seventeenth edition. Critical articles should not exceed 10,000 words. Invited book reviews are usually limited to 2,000 words.
Article submissions should be emailed to in doc or PDF format. Please include in the email message your institutional or other scholarly affiliations, a mailing address, and an article abstract of approximately 250 words.
Authors concerned to know if their work is appropriate for Genre are asked to review past issues. Inquiries seeking to ascertain the journal’s interest in a topic prior to the submission of an article may not receive a reply.
Receipt of submissions will be confirmed within a week.
