Submission Guidelines

Articles must be no longer than 2000 words, and should adhere to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style with footnotes (no in-text citations).

  • A tentative title for your work.

  • The essay in .docx format.

  • A copy of the marked essay with comments (as found on TurnItIn or otherwise).
