The ideal ECW essay focuses on a problem or an issue of interest to people involved in the reading of Canadian writing, and does so in a style that is engaging and direct.

The journal also supports the publication of interviews and bibliographies devoted to Canadian literary topics. Essays of any length will be considered.

A decision regarding any submission can be expected within three months.
