As part of our engagement with scholarship about the US South, we wanted to let our readers know about the recent call for papers from The Southern Quarterly. Please remember that Southern Spaces also continues to accept submissions on a rolling basis. For details, see our submission guidelines.

From The Southern Quarterly:

Celebrating fifty years of publication, The Southern Quarterly: A Journal of Arts in the South invites submissions of interdisciplinary scholarly articles, interviews with major Southern writers, composers, and artists, unpublished archival materials, and poems anchored in the ethos of the South.

Since special issues on Natasha Trethewey and religion in the South are forthcoming, we are not currently reading manuscripts on these topics.

We do not consider email submissions, previously published work, or work being considered elsewhere. Submit two hard copies of your work (not to exceed twenty to twenty-five pages) with a cover letter. Follow the instructions on our submissions guidelines page ( Please submit original manuscripts to the following address:
