Simms’s Circle

The Simms Review, the peer-reviewed journal of the William Gilmore Simms Society, invites submissions for an upcoming issue on the topic of “Simms’s Circle.”  Most recognized for his prolific output as a writer and editor, Simms also corresponded and otherwise interacted with many of the most influential American belletrists and of his day, as well as his south Carolina family and political associates.  Simms operated in this “circle” as, variously, a friend, peer, fellow pundit, reviewer, rival, mentor, or collaborator.
