Author Guidelines

Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation invites submission of original articles and notes, welcomes work grounded in a wide range of theoretical and critical perspectives, and encourages inquiries proposing submissions and projects. The editors of Poe Studies do not review essays that are simultaneously under consideration elsewhere.

Electronic submissions are preferred; send in Microsoft Word format by email attachment. To aid blind review, the author's name should not appear on the essay itself. Contributions should conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. Submissions that find their way into the journal's pages typically range from 6,000 to 13,000 words—depending on the requirements of the argument in question. (Unrevised dissertation chapters are not likely to meet with success.)

Time of report is normally two to four months. Email submissions to Send inquiries to
