The Wallace Stevens Journal welcomes submissions on all aspects of Wallace Stevens’s writing and life. Articles range from interpretive criticism of his poetry and essays to comparisons with other writers, from biographical and contextual studies to more theoretically informed reflections. Also welcome are previously unpublished primary or archival material and photographs, proposals for guest-edited special issues, and original Stevens-inspired creative works.

Article submissions should be emailed to the Editor as attached Microsoft Word documents. Authors should consult recent articles to see typical content, standard form, and customary length. The journal does not impose strict limits as to word count; shorter and longer pieces are welcome.

Please prepare manuscripts according to current MLA style (see the MLA Handbook, 9th Edition, 2021), using Works Cited format and parenthetical citation. All lines (including block quotations and endnotes) should be double-spaced. The standard sources for quotations from Stevens’s works are Wallace Stevens: Collected Poetry and Prose (Library of America, 1997) and Letters of Wallace Stevens (Knopf, 1966; rpt. U of California P, 1996). In parenthetical citations in the text, these sources are abbreviated as CPP and L, respectively. In rare instances where a small error in CPP occurs, it will be silently corrected. Do not quote whole poems that are still under copyright (1923 and after) and take care to critically discuss all quoted passages rather than using any merely as illustration. Do not include your name anywhere on the manuscript itself; compose your text in such a way that it does not compromise anonymity in the review process. Authors should provide full contact information on a separate title page: name, address, phone, and email.

Authors of accepted articles will be required to furnish a roughly hundred-word abstract and six or seven keywords (see the instructions below) as well as images of all quotations, excepting those from the standard sources of Stevens, with the passages marked, for systematic verification. Title, author, copyright information, and page numbers must be clear.

The journal also publishes poetry related to or inspired by Wallace Stevens as well as book reviews, news and comments, a current bibliography of annual scholarship on Stevens, and reproductions of artwork inspired by the poet. For poetry submissions, contact the Poetry Editor. For inquiries and proposals regarding book reviews, contact the Book Review Editor. If you are interested in proposing art for the cover or elsewhere, contact the Art Editor.

Abstracts & Keywords

Abstracts and keywords will be requested when an article is accepted for publication; they need not be submitted before then. In addition to offering readers an overview of important ideas and concepts, both supplement the title as searchable metadata. The abstract of 80-120 words should include Wallace Stevens’s full name and other language that will help search engines match the essay appropriately with topical queries. It should avoid self-reference (e.g., “this essay,” “the current argument”) and leave claims about exigency to the essay itself. The six or seven keywords are importantly supplementary. Each may be a single- or multi-word concept (e.g., a person’s full name, the title of a poem or work of art); none should repeat a word or concept already in the title or abstract. Please refer to previous examples, which may be found in The Wallace Stevens Journal essays beginning with vol. 48, no. 1 (Spring 2024).

Peer Review Policy

The Wallace Stevens Journal welcomes original work that relates to the writings of Wallace Stevens and is not simultaneously being submitted elsewhere. Submissions can be scholarly essays as well as shorter notes and reflections, interviews, creative work, artwork, poems, reviews, translations, etc. While all materials undergo assessment by one or more members of the Editorial Board, it is the scholarly essays that are subject to a standard double-blind peer review. For nearly all submissions, the Editor and Associate Editors undertake a preliminary screening; in the case of book reviews, this is done together with the Book Review Editor; in the case of poems, it is the Poetry Editor who decides.

Scholarly essays may be of varying length. They are assessed with the usual academic criteria (originality, clarity, theoretical and methodological sophistication, etc.), but the author should bear in mind that assessors are experts who are well versed in the history of Stevens criticism. Submissions should be aware of this history and relate claims to extant scholarship. Authors are advised to acquaint themselves thoroughly in advance with the subjects already discussed in the journal. (The first 35 years are available in open access on the Wallace Stevens Society website, the rest through Project MUSE.) Peer-review reports distinguish among four categories: accept; minor revisions; major revisions; reject. Revised essays are processed by the Editor, though he may opt for renewed peer review. In case of final acceptance, the journal’s production schedule may necessitate an extended wait, as most issues nowadays are special rather than general issues.
