Winter Issue Special Feature: Writing and Reading at Work
The Quarterly Conversation is happy to announce that we will be running a special feature in our Winter issue on the theme of reading and writing at work. For this feature we are interested in:
- the literary criticism that we usually publish, only focused on authors who have unusual relationships to their places of employment (think Gaddis and Walser)
- personal essays that deal with one’s relationship to reading/writing and their work; or essays about reading/writing at work, provided that these essays have a significant literary criticism component
- reviews of books that deal with this subject
We are accepting contributions for this special feature on a rolling schedule. Inquire with the editor for specific deadlines.
As always, we will also be considering the usual array of features, book reviews, and interviews for the Winter issue.
