Books to Review

The following are available to review or for other forms of coverage. We cover books that aren’t on our list, so reach out to Jeff Chon if you’re interested in reviewing books, interviewing authors, or helming another type of project. We only publish interviews and reviews online. We encourage 1000 words per book review. There are no word count restrictions for interviews or general criticism, however. Craft essays are welcome.
