Since its inception in 1971, JNT has provided a forum for the theoretical exploration of individual narrative texts and of narrative more generally. Current essay submissions should address the intersection of narrative, history, ideology, and culture all broadly defined. The editors are particularly interested in essays that rethink narrative theory and those which cross-disciplinary boundaries. Recent issues have included essays concerned with literary theory, cultural studies and marginalized literary figures and texts.
Manuscripts should follow the latest edition of the MLA style manual. Recommended length is 20-35 pages (double-spaced with one-inch margins). Keep footnotes to a minimum and incorporate material into the main text wherever possible.
Contributors must submit two hard copies of the manuscript and email a digital copy to JNT@emich.edu (or mail a digital copy on CD-ROM). Omit all references to the author to ensure blind review.
Append a cover letter with contact information, including a functional email address and the location to which accepted manuscripts should be sent for final review.
Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope to have hard copies returned. Overseas authors may wish to submit disposable copies and so indicate in an accompanying letter.
Receipt of manuscripts will be confirmed on arrival. The journal does not accept simultaneous submissions.
The author is responsible for obtaining permissions for illustrations and/or extracts. Photocopies of images are acceptable for submissions, but high-resolution glossy prints or computer files will be necessary upon acceptance.
Email general inquiries to JNT@emich.edu. Mail submissions to the following address:
