Each year E3W graduate students and faculty collaborate to write, edit and publish a Review of important works and archives in the field. Reviews cover works of fiction, poetry, ethnography and more. Students are also encouraged to interview important authors and review works of art such as contemporary film and theatre.

Hannah Hopkins and Keerti Arora are serving as Co-Editors for the 2023 issue.

I.B. Hopkins and Iana Robitaille served as the Co-Chairs of the 2023 Sequels Symposium.
