JWIL: Journal of West Indian Literature

JWIL - Journal of West Indian Literature CoversJWIL, the premier journal in the field, is a twice-yearly publication of the Departments of Literatures in English of The University of the West Indies campuses. The Editors invite the submission of articles that are the result of scholarly research in the literature of the English-speaking Caribbean. The Editors will also consider the publication of articles on the literatures of the non-English-speaking Caribbean, provided such articles are written in English and have a clear relevance to the themes and concerns of Caribbean literature in English or are of a comparative nature, comparing Caribbean literature in another language with that in English. JWIL will also publish book reviews. The journal is indexed in the MLA Bibliography.

All articles submitted should be in English, typed and double-spaced. Notes, also double-spaced, should be gathered at the end. Manuscripts should conform to the styles and the conventions set out in the MLA Handbook and if coming from outside the Caribbean, should be accompanied by international reply coupons.

US$40 per annum (two issues) PLUS US$9 (postage and handling)
