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.
Fall 2013 Issue
TALTP is accepting articles for our Fall 2013 issue.

In particular we would like to hear how these authors have been or could be taught to both undergraduates and graduates.
The deadline for manuscript submission is December 15, 2013.
