Submissions

We seek intelligent critical articles written in a clear, readable style that offer our readers thoughtful, useful, pedagogically sound, and innovative ideas for teaching American literature. We are also interested in articles about new American authors or lesser known authors who haven't seen much study. All articles go through a blind peer review process with editorial staff making all final publishing decisions.

We publish four to six articles of 2500 to 9000 words in each online issue of TALTP, which appears quarterly. Brief book reviews and articles of fewer than 2500 words for our occasional "How Do You Do It?" feature also are welcome, as are books for review.  Contact us for titles to review or to review one of our titles.

The journal is indexed by Ebscohost's Education Research Complete and MLA Bibliography. 

Winter 2014 Issue Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice (TALTP), a peer-reviewed open source online journal, is accepting articles for our Winter 2014 special issue, Who Is Teaching U.S.? We are interested in articles by instructors and their experiences in teaching American literature in countries outside the United States. How are the classic and contemporary American authors taught and received in other countries? What are the difficulties? The benefits? Any issue pertaining to teaching American literature is welcome, from assignment creation, gender issues, difficulties with translations, to first-hand accounts of both successes and failures.

Although we accept/review manuscripts all year, the deadline for this special issue is May 15, 2014.
