Who can write for The Confluence?
We’re actively soliciting articles from writers and scholars studying in and about our region. This might include professional writers, academic scholars, and even high-quality student work. An editorial board will oversee the peer review of every article.

What’s the editorial process?
Every article in The Confluence will be peer-reviewed. This process is overseen by an Editorial Board comprised of scholars both within and beyond Lindenwood University who have particular expertise in one or more of the fields covered by The Confluence. This board is chaired by Jeffrey Smith, PhD, professor of history at Lindenwood.

If you’re interested in being considered as a reviewer, contact us at confluence@lindenwood.edu.

What kinds of article formats are we looking for?
Feature articles. These are full-length articles that will be 5,000-9,000 words along; they must be original articles that have never been published elsewhere.

Historical Primary Sources. Journals, letters, documents, and photo essays that publish historical materials would include your editing and annotating those works.

Short feature pictures and sites. We’re also looking for shorter pieces, perhaps featuring images or artifacts from collections owned by institutions or individuals.

Have a manuscript or an article idea?
We’d like to talk to you about your article concept to help it fit with our publishing priorities. You can do so by email at confluence@lindenwood.edu or by calling 636-949-4991.

This is an illustrated publication, so be sure to suggest possible images that would contribute to your article as well.
