A Note to Contributors

Essays submitted for possible publication in Selected Papers of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference must have been read at the annual fall OVS Conference to be eligible for consideration. Manuscripts must deal in some way with the main theme of each year’s conference, e.g., “AppropriatingShakespeare.”

Manuscripts are submitted early in January, and final decisions typically occur the following fall. Each volume is published electronically early in the next year.  The editor’s address is:

All manuscripts must conform to the most recent MLA Handbook, with parenthetical documentation, minimal or no endnotes, and a Works Cited page. Copies of manuscripts are normally submitted electronically only.  Please use Microsoft Vista and make sure to include a cover letter that contains your
name, university affiliation, email, and phone. In the future, we hope to be able to use photos and artwork. For Shakespearean references, use standard title abbreviations and Arabic numbers for act/scene/line numbers, e.g.  (Lr. 4.1.17‐22).
