Submission Guidelines

Submit essays with abstracts to as an electronic attachment in Microsoft Word. All e-mails should be addressed to Managing Editor, GLQ. Do not submit previously published articles without the permission of the editors. Do not simultaneously offer your article to another publication. All lines should be double-spaced (including lines in the notes), with 1.5-inch left and right margins. Articles should not exceed 12,000 words. To maintain anonymity in the review process, put names, affiliations, and mailing addresses on a separate title page. Citations to an author's own works should be made in a way that does not compromise anonymity. GLQ uses The Chicago Manual of Style, seventeenth edition, as its main reference. Articles use a reference list and in-text author-date citations for documentation. Follow Chicago, chapter 15, for the form of all citations.

GLQ does not accept unsolicited book or film/video reviews. Reviews are edited in cooperation with the GL/Q Caucus for the Modern Languages, an affiliate organization of the MLA. Inquiries, proposals, and works for review may be sent to the appropriate review editor.
