    yet another forward from me ... there is rhyme to reason...


    _Postmodern Culture_ is looking for reviews of recent films, exhibitions of
    film/video art, and books on video and film (including film theory and
    history) for the January 1998 issue, which will be devoted entirely to film.

    Reviews should be approximately 2000-3500 words long, and should follow the
    journal's format guidelines below. The deadline for submission is November
    24, 1997.

    Send reviews, proposals, or queries to Paula Geyh at:

    Macintosh-compatible diskettes containing ASCII or Word, or IBM-compatible
    diskettes containing ASCII files may be mailed to Professor Paula Geyh at:
    Department of English, 215 University Hall, Northwestern University, 1897
    Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208.


    You can save us a good deal of work by following these guidelines:

    Reviews should generally run between 2000 and 3500 words, or about
    8-14 ordinary manuscript pages.

    Set margins to half-inch left, two-inch right, and set your font
    to Courier 10cpi (or any 10cpi, non-proportional font). This is very
    important, as it prevents too many characters on a line.

    Put a title at the top of the first page, and under it your name,
    institutional affiliation, email address, and mailing address.
    Center these lines.

    Number all paragraphs of your text with bracketed numbers. These
    bracketed numbers should be margin-released into the left-hand
    margin (this will place them at the 0" spot on the line).

    Indent (to 1") the first line of each paragraph and all lines of set-
    off quotations.

    Single-space the document throughout.

    Use _this_ for underlining titles, *this* for bold print or
    emphasis, %this% for foreign words, and ^this^ for superscript.

    Footnotes, if any, should follow MLA format.

    Page references in the text, if any, should not be preceded by p.,
    pp., or any other notation; use just the page number itself.

    Send your submission to the review editor at, not to the
    _PMC_ offices. Submissions can also be sent on floppy disk to Paula Geyh
    at the Department of English, 215 University Hall, Northwestern University,
    1897 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208. If e-mailing, make sure the
    document is not encoded, and that it has been stripped of all
    word-processing codes (i.e, saved as ASCII or DOS text).

    You may post a follow-up message or a new message. To send a reply directly to the author, you may click on the email address above.
