Chat with a Legacy Editor

As has recently been reported, the COVID-19 epidemic has had a dramatic impact on women’s research productivity, measured in part by drops in their journal submissions. Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers relies on the work of women–as researchers, authors, consultants, board members, and editors. We recognize that the effects of social distancing are affecting women’s productivity and we want to help! 

Do you have an idea for an article that you’ve always wanted to write? Are you wondering if your piece is suitable for Legacy? Do you have transcribed letters from an archive that you’d like to share? Or a profile on a woman writer you’ve recovered? If you’d like to “chat with an editor” via email or Zoom, please contact us. 

If you’d like to consult with one of the co-editors about an article, you can reach Susan Tomlinson at; Jennifer Putzi at; or Jennifer Tuttle at
