Guidelines for Manuscript Submissions

Manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced, with one-inch margins, and should follow the current MLA style guide with internal citations and a list of works cited. Endnotes should be reserved for explanatory comments and supplementary information. Where applicable, quotations should be made to the Library of America volumes of Welty's works as the standard in the field. The Library of America uses Welty's first editions of all her story collections, novels, and memoir, and includes "Where Is the Voice Coming From?" and "The Demonstrators" from Collected Stories, plus selected essays.

Please submit manuscripts by email to the editor, Dr. Pearl McHaney, as Microsoft Word attachments. Illustrative materials should be sent by email as .tif files. Manuscripts and images can also be sent via regular mail to the address listed above and should be saved on a compact disc as .tif images.
