We are interested in reviews that overtly, intimately, intensely, and interestingly engage in conversation with authors and their texts. We are interested in reviews that can stand alone. Reviews submitted for O P E N should be written as open notes (250-500 words) or letters (500+ words) to the author(s) of the reviewed text. Open notes and letters that address the text itself or some animal, vegetable, mineral, character, or characteristic of the text are also interesting to us. We are excited by reviews of events and multimedia reviews. Notes and letters will be published here on an occasional basis.
