Book Reviews

We are currently looking for Book Reviewers. If you are interested in reviewing for us, please send an email to with "Book Reviewing" in the subject line. Please attach to that email 2-3 links to previous publications or, if links are unavailable, a 500-word sample of recent critical writing.

We're currently accepting pitches. If you have an idea for an essay/review that gnaws, that presses, we want to hear about it. Send us a 1 paragraph summary of the piece and the books involved along with: 2-3 links to previous publications, or, if links are unavailable, a 500-word sample of recent critical writing. We'll get in touch if we think it's a good fit.

Good luck, friends.
