Midwestern Miscellany is published twice a year by the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature. Typically, a guest editor selects a theme, topic, or author and issues a call for the issue. Often those whose essays are selected for the special issue present them on panels organized by the guest editor at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature, or at the Society’s panels at MMLA, MLA, PCA, and/or ALA. Members who would like to be a guest editor for an issue of Midwestern Miscellany should contact Patricia Oman.
