These are longer than Tiny Reviews and engage with a specific element of a book. Maybe there’s a character that embodies a particular belief or tradition from the author’s culture, or there’s a theme whose emphasis was subtle but you think it really added depth to the story and you want to bring it out. These are not longer versions of the Tiny Reviews, but an opportunity for you to share knowledge or insight about one specific part of a book. Character or theme studies should still include a short summary of the plot to provide context for your argument, but focus mainly on the element of the book you’re trying to describe.
These reviews should be no longer than 800 words. $40 honorarium.
