The Department of English is home to several publications, including Poetry Miscellany, The Sequoya Review, The Tennessee Philological Bulletin, MidAmerica, and Midwestern
Miscellany. Our students often participate in the production of these publications.
The Sequoya Review
UTC students and the Sequoya Review have won first prizes prize in poetry and fiction and second prize in Literary Magazines at the Southern Literary Festival.
This magazine aims to publish engaging, immediate creative writing and visual art by UT-Chattanooga students. Everyone is encouraged to submit and all works will be judged anonymously and impartially under the condition of blind submission. Please visit the Sequoya Review website for more details!
The Poetry Miscellany
The Poetry Miscellany, now all on line, started up in 1970. It has published several Pulitzer prize winners, a Nobel prize winner, and interviews of about a dozen contemporary poets. Students have opportunities to work on TPM. Contact Dr. Jackson.
Tennessee Philological Bulletin
The Tennessee Philological Bulletin, the publication of the Tennessee Philological Association, appears annually. It contains the proceedings of the Association, the annual Presidential Address, two to five papers on a topic chosen by the membership, and abstracts of papers read at the annual meeting. The Bulletin is free to members of the Association; its cost to others is $11.00. Only papers by those who have read them in person at the meeting are considered for publication in the Bulletin. The Bulletin is published at the Department of English of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Its editor is Dr. Katherine Heinrichs Rehyansky. Inquiries and submissions should be directed to her.
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 Marcia Noe.
