Journal Description

Sargasso, a peer-reviewed journal of literature, language, and culture edited at the University of Puerto Rico, features critical essays, interviews, book reviews, as well as poems and short stories. Published from the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras for almost thirty years, Sargasso is affiliated with the Ph.D. program in Caribbean Literature and Linguistics in the Department of English of the College of Humanities. Two issues of the journal are produced each academic year. These are either published separately or combined in a double issue.  The latest Sargasso issues are on display in the Richardson Seminar Room. These are available in the Sargasso office and area bookstores.  They can also be purchased by mail. 

Sargasso particularly welcomes material written by and about the people of the Caribbean region and its multiple diasporas. Essays and critical studies should conform to the style of the MLA Handbook unless other specifications are provided for a particular issue.  Short stories should be kept to no more than 2,500 words in length, and poems should be kept to thirty lines or less.  While submissions are accepted at any time, potential contributors are asked to keep in mind that recent issues have been organized around specific themes.  To communicate by e-mail, please write to: .
