Guidelines for Reviews


The Corresponder: A Fan Letter on Minnesota Writers reviews work only by Minnesota authors. We have a preference for reviews of literary works in the genres of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and memoir. Please take the time to sample reviews from previous issues.

The Corresponder office generally has a number of titles ready for review at any time. Please contact the Editor for a list of books available. We regret that our only form of payment for your review is the title you selected.

Review format/submission process: Include as a heading for all reviews: book title, author's name, publisher and year of copyright, and indicate hardcover/softcover format and the price of the book. Please limit your review to no more than 400 words. Submit an electronic copy of the review in Word format via e-mail to the editor. Also, submit a hardcopy of your review as well as the book itself, or the dust jacket in the case of a hardcover bookówe need to scan its cover for publication and will return the copy afterwards.


You may drop your review off in The Corresponder's box in the English Department Office at Armstrong Hall 230, Minnesota State University, Mankato or mail to:
