Guidelines for Submission of Proposals

Langdon Review Cover

Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas publishes poetry, short stories, essays, creative non-fiction, photography, and art. As a multi-disciplined journal, we hope that each issue demonstrates the diversity and varied creativity of artists who have a Texas connection.

The main goal of the Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas is to provide a venue for the promotion and appreciation of the arts in Texas. We want to inform our readers about artistic endeavors that might have gone unheralded. We want to showcase writers and artists who have a Texas connection by publishing a considerable range of their work (10-12 poems by one poet; 7-8 photographs by one photographer, for example). Editors of the Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas do not accept unsolicited manuscripts; however, we welcome proposals and letters of inquiry at langdon@tarleton.edu.

Proposals Only, Please

Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas proposals are refereed by the editors, in conjunction with select members of the Langdon Review Editorial Board. Proposals are judged on their importance, originality, timeliness, scope, accuracy, and style. Submitters wishing to be considered for poetry, short stories, photography, and art should send a letter of inquiry and a vita. Please keep in mind that we do not publish previously published works. Please be sure that your letter of inquiry includes your contact information with email, address, and phone number. Essayists should send a proposal summarizing their topic and explaining the how it impacts the state of the arts in Texas.  Do not send completed manuscripts.

Payment is not possible for contributions to the journal. Each author receives one complimentary copy of the issue in which her or his work appears.
