Author Guidelines

The editors of the ChLA Quarterly will consider scholarly articles on all aspects of children’s literature at any time. Articles submitted for publication should be 20-25 pages in length and should conform to MLA style. Please send completed essays by e-mail attachment in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format to or by mail to:

Sara K. Day, Editor
Truman State University
100 E. Normal Ave.
MC 313-A
Kirksville, MO 63501

Please also submit electronically a cover sheet indicating the author's name and address. Identifying information should appear at no other place in the essay. For all submissions, please double-space all texts, notes, and bibliography; do not justify right margins or use a footnote/endnote program.

We will not consider work that is under submission elsewhere or that has been published previously. The Quarterly uses a double-anonymous evaluation system: we will not share the identity of the author with the readers, nor the readers’ identities with the author.

Books for review should be sent directly to the book review editor:
