To submit a manuscript to the editorial office, please visit and create an author profile. The online system will guide you through the steps to upload your manuscript. Inquiries regarding article submissions may be directed to the editor, Paul Ohler at .

Archival, pedagogical, and review essays may be shorter than 20 pages. Archival pieces highlight previously unpublished materials by Wharton, or those that help us gain new understanding of her life and work (letters about Wharton or members of her circle or family, or manuscripts referring to Wharton, for example). Pedagogical pieces should offer approaches taken to Wharton in the classroom. Review essays might be pieces on little-read works by Wharton and work by her associates; they might also focus on Wharton’s status in contemporary culture. Authors wishing to submit such articles should query the Editor.

The journal reviews scholarship on Wharton as well as work on literature at the turn of the century, early-twentieth-century American literature, and American women’s writing more generally.
