CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are pleased to announce that the Journal of Black Mountain College Studies is resuming publication. After a three-year hiatus, the Journal again welcomes submissions for editorial review. We plan to have a new issue online in 2019.

The Journal of Black Mountain College Studies is a peer-reviewed open-access digital publication of the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC). The Journal seeks to host diverse works by writers and artists of varied backgrounds. We welcome academic articles, essays, reviews, poetry, images and forms of artistic expression.

Submissions are welcome at any time. Please submit an abstract and projected date for completion before submitting a full article or creative work. Send all materials as email attachments to:  [email protected]

At this time we are only able to accept written contributions in English. We encourage you to limit your use of discipline-specific jargon.

The peer review process will follow standards applicable to the work submitted. For written works we recommend not exceeding 7,000 words. Please submit text in Microsoft Word (or a format that we can open in Word). Images should be sized appropriately for Web display and include captions or identifying information.

Authors are responsible for acquiring any permissions that are needed for any images or written material (i.e. poems, excerpts from unpublished texts) covered by copyright. Authors should consult with the editors about what permissions are required and the process of receiving those permissions before submitting an article or creative work. The editors can provide resources for the permission process.

Citations should normally follow the Chicago Manual of Style, but if authors prefer another style such as MLA please request this with your submission. All submissions must be in a digital format that can be supported on WordPress.

Copyright for each work published is held by the respective author. The journal does not ask for notice from the author for further publication but does require annotated credit as the location of first publication. Works published previously may be submitted; please contact the editors to discuss copyright. The selection and arrangement of works in each issue is copyright Journal of Black Mountain College Studies and The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center.
