Submission Guidelines

Submissions are now being accepted for our Fall 2021 edition!.

The theme for the Fall 2021 issue of the journal is REVOLUTION:

We consider the theme in terms of the natural cycle or course of all things. Drawing from etymological roots of the word indicating the movement of celestial bodies, we are embracing these paths of change that have come to define the word in historical and contemporary reference, characterized as much by uncertainty as by possibility. As we have emerged from the most uncertain period of the pandemic and find ourselves re-examining what it means to be in this world, we move from the individual to the collective, from death to birth, from fear to courage, and take this opportunity to re-evaulate where we have been and what our future can be. .

Deadline for submissions: October 22, 2021. To submit your work to the journal, please send your manuscripts to the.mals.journal@dartmouth.edu. When sending in your submissions, please also include a brief note in the body of the email explaining the connection between your piece and the theme of REVOLUTION.

General Submission Rules

The journal is open to submissions from MALS students, MALS alumni and current Guarini graduate students. The details of manuscript requirements and other submission rules can be found below:

  • File format: All written work must be submitted in MS Word format. For photography and digital artwork, please use the .jpeg image file format with a minimum resolution of 300dpi.

  • Bio: When submitting your piece, please also send in a brief (3-4 lines) biographical note in a separate MS Word document.

  • Page count: The length of written submissions should not exceed 20 pages, double spaced with a 12 pt font. Authors whose work is accepted may be asked to edit for length. We are open to considering an excerpt from a larger work as long as it functions as a stand-alone piece and fits into our theme.

  • Formatting: Clamantis uses the Notes-Bibliography (NB) system of the Chicago Manual of Style for citations and references. Authors may choose to initially submit their piece in a different citation format, but if their piece is accepted for publication they will be asked to rework their manuscript in light of the Chicago style guidelines.

  • Copyrights: Authors who have published with Clamantis retain the right to publish that piece elsewhere. However, once a work becomes part of a Clamantis edition, the MALS Journal Editorial Team maintains the right to publish that work indefinitely, in both digital and print forms.
