Call For Papers: Slayage Joss In June Issue!!

Following the success (and immense fun!) of “Joss in June,” Dale and I have been asked to co-guest edit a special issue of Slayage: The Journal of the Whedon Studies Association, in order to publish some of the work presented at the conference!

If you are interested in having your work included in this Very Special Issue, here’s what you need to know:
·         This CFP is strictly limited to “Joss in June” presenters.
·         Only papers based on “Joss in June” presentations will be considered.
·         Papers should be article-length (6000 – 8000 words) and should conform to the publication guidelines (regarding formatting, etc.) for Slayage.  Here’s a handy link to those guidelines - http://slayageonline.com/pages/Slayage/submissions.htm.

·         Please – if your presentation paper has been published or is being considered for publication with another journal/book/endeavor – we cannot in good conscience also publish it in Slayage.  We wish you well, but please do not double-submit.

After submission, your article will go through Slayage’s usual double blind review process by at least two members of the Slayage editorial board, and if accepted for publication, will see “print” in the early spring of 2014 (March or April).

To be considered, please send your article to both of us.  That’s Dale Guffey guffeyd@clevelandcc.edu and Ensley Guffey ensleyguffey@gmail.com.

The deadline for submissions is NOVEMBER 30, 2013. Please be aware that this is a very firm deadline. Due to the review and publication process, we simply will not be able to take late submissionsno matter how heart-rending the reason!  (Seriously.)

Thanks once again for your participation in “Joss in June,” and we hope to hear from you soon!
