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., “Working Shakespeares.”
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. We are now able to use photos and artwork if they are contained as part of an accepted manuscript. For Shakespearean references, use standard title abbreviations and Arabic numbers for act/scene/line numbers, e.g. (Lr. 4.1.17-22).
