Hemingway Review Blog

The Hemingway Review blog shares information on topics relevant to Hemingway, his writings, and the study of his work. It’s a more casual, less serious space for playful pieces and personal reflections. We will consider videos, audio recordings, slide presentations, photographs, and short pieces of writing (generally 250-500 words). Reflections on teaching and discussions of popular culture are welcome. Please review the blog's submission guidelines and contact Lisa Tyler, blog editor, at lisa.tyler@sinclair.edu if you are interested in contributing to the blog.
