Submit Your Deposity

Publish your critical work on literature from any discipline.

Founded in 1997, The Common Room is a bi-annual electronic journal sponsored by the Department of English and devoted to publishing critical essays on literature from any disciplinary area.

Any Knox College student can submit work to the journal for publication consideration. There are two formal calls for essay submissions during the academic year. Students are encouraged to make submissions and contribute to yet another aspect of the literary community on campus.
