Review Submission Guidelines


The Latin American Literary Review is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the literature of Latin America (including the United States) and Brazil. It is published semiannually in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Since its appearance in the Fall of 1972, the magazine has been very well received, and has aroused national and international interest. It is directed by Professor Debra A. Castillo.

Bringing to its readers the most recent writing of some of the leading scholars and critics in the fields of Hispanic and Portuguese literature, the Latin American Literary Review is of interest to all libraries and institutions of higher learning, and especially to all departments of English, Modern Languages, Latin American Studies, and Comparative Literature.

Beginning in 2016, the journal is moving to an open-access online platform, administered through the Latin American Studies Association.
