Literary Matters (New Series) is an online journal publishing works of literary criticism and scholarship, poetry, literary translations, and interviews. For many years Literary Matters was a newsletter for the Association of Literary Scholars, Writers, and Critics. It will continue to publish news about local meetings of the ALSCW and about new books published by ALSCW members.

Located at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, Literary Matters is published by the ALSCW three times per year, in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Currently, we are only accepting submissions from ALSCW members in good standing. For membership information go to the ALSCW’s website (alscw.org).
