The Mark Twain Annual publishes critical articles about Mark Twain, his writing, and the literary and cultural legacy of his work. Biographical and historical articles will generally not be considered, unless such articles have a clear pedagogical focus.  Critical articles may be 5,000-8,000 words long. In addition, The Annual also accepts pedagogical articles, which are generally shorter, 2,000-5,000 words long.  Book reviews may be 1,000-1,400 words long and are assigned by the editor. Longer reviews may be acceptable for multi-author collections; contact the Book Review Editor directly if this applies.
