(We prefer unpublished materials, however, if you have something already published and want us to consider republication of that, please send us a copy indicating where and when it was published.)

All papers and essays must be written double spaced with endnotes and a bibliography following a standard format. It should not exceed 1,800 words; and sent to us by June 1.
