The ideal ECW essay focuses on a problem or an issue of interest to people involved in the reading of Canadian writing, and does so in a style that is engaging and direct. Our aim is to publish original, challenging, and factually accurate research on all periods and genres of Canadian writing. ECW encourages the publication of detailed review essays of new books by and about Canadian writers or about theoretical issues connected with the study and appreciation of Canadian Literature. The journal also supports the publication of interviews and bibliographies devoted to Canadian literary topics. Essays of any length will be considered.
