Submissions are welcome in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese. Prior to submission, authors are advised to consult the journal Editors, as Litteraria Pragensia publishes thematic issues only.

Articles should be in the range of 4,000-7,000 words. They must be preceded by keywords and a 200-word abstract in English, and supplemented with a bibliography and a 200-word biographical note (including the author’s e-mail address).
