Call for Papers

The North American Review, the longest-lived literary magazine in the United States, is pleased to announce that it is now accepting submissions to its Bicentennial Creative Writing & Literature Conference, to be held on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA, June 11-13, 2015. The editors invite proposals for individual papers, pre-formed panels (3-4 panelists), or roundtable discussions (4-6 participants).

  • Critical papers, panels, and roundtables may be submitted on any literary or cultural topic, theme, author, art work, or text that has some connection (broadly conceived) to the North American Review. Group society proposals are welcome.
  • Creative Writing proposals may include readings of your own creative work, explorations of the craft and theory of writing, or discussions of creative writing pedagogy, the publishing world, the professionalization of creative writing, or creative writing as a discipline in the university.

Visit northamericanreview.submittable.com/submit to upload your submission.
