Essays on Canadian Writing was established in 1974 as a scholarly journal of criticism and review devoted to the study of Canadian literature. We are receptive to all critical approaches and to all theoretical modes of inquiry. Submissions are welcome in English and French.

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.

In all submissions, the author should be identified only on a cover sheet that includes his or her name, address, telephone number, and fax number or Internet address (if applicable). A decision regarding any submission can be expected within three months. All submissions must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped return envelope, and must conform to the format established in The MLA Handbook, fourth edition (1995). Please submit three copies of your work.

Essays on Canadian Writing is indexed in the American Humanities Index, the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, the Book Review Index, the Canadian Index, the Canadian Literature Index, the Canadian Periodical Index, the Children's Book Review Index, the Humanities Index, and the MLA Bibliography, and is included in Abstracts of English Studies, The Year's Work in English Studies, and Ulrich's International Periodical Directory.

ECW is available in micrographic and electronic reproduction in Current Contents (Philadelphia), from EBSCO Publishing (Peabody, MA), and from Micromedia (Toronto).
