General Call for Submissions to the Journal: Legacy welcomes essays on texts and contexts of U.S. women writers from the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries. This might include examinations of the works of individual authors; genre studies; analyses of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexualities in women’s literature; and historical and material cultural issues pertinent to women’s lives and literary works.

We publish regular essays of up to 10,000 words as well as a variety of shorter features, including meditations on archival praxis and recovery, Profiles, Reprints, On Culture, and From the Archives.

Please note that because we use a double-blind review process and publishing decisions are made only by the editors, all Legacy consultant/readers and board members are welcome to submit their work to the journal.
