Book Reviews
—John C. Hartsock, Book Review Editor: hartsockjs"black">Submission guide
• We are interested in reviews of books treating narrative journalism (a.k.a., literary journalism, creative nonfiction, etc.).
• We are also interested in reviews of books in the documentary tradition, both narrative and photographic.The reviews should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words in length.
The reviews may be on either contemporary or historical examples of the genre. If historical, the review should reflect at least a passing familiarity with the critical perspectives on the work, as well as contribute new insights. However, thoughtful reviews of existing scholarship and other critical perspectives on a historical work that will help critics and writers of the form to engage in further investigation will also be considered. For reviews of books that are not recent publications, consider in the review why the book is worth re-examining at this time (e.g., as a teacher's resource, as a writer's resource, and so on).
Professional journalists' perspectives on the craft as reflected in contemporary or historical examples are welcome. Essays may be informal or formal, but should bear in mind in tone and style the journal’s purpose as a meeting ground for different perspectives.

For book review submissions:
• Length: 1,000-1,500 words
• Mail one hard copy, and e-mail a Microsoft Word attached file of the piece to:
