Good news!  Shenandoah will be publishing my essay, “Alfred Hitchcock’s Grammar” in the fall.  They put out two issues per year.  From their website: 

Shenandoah was founded in 1950 by a group of Washington and Lee University faculty members and undergraduates, Tom Wolfe among them. For a brief time it was primarily an undergraduate magazine, but under the leadership of student editor Tom Carter Shenandoah became a quarterly, publishing a cast of international writers including e e cummings, Dylan Thomas, W. H. Auden, James Merrill, Ezra Pound, William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor. From the 60′s to the 80′s, Washington and Lee faculty member James Boatwright expanded the journal and published occasional theme issues, including a 35th anniversary anthology. In 1995, R. T. Smith was selected as the first full-time editor of the journal, which in 2002 began to appear triannually. It has been since 2011 a web journal ( published biannually with several features updated regularly.

Past contributors to Shenandoah include Natasha Trethewey, Robert Wrigley, Margaret Gibson, Eamon Grennan, Stephen Dunn, Alyson Hagy, Fred Chappell, Ha Jin, Mebdh McGuckian, Rick Bass, Ezra Pound, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Steve Scafidi, Jr., Lisa Sandlin, Brendan Galvin, Rosanna Warren, Rodney Jones, Linda Pastan, Michael Longley, Alice Friman, Gibbons Ruark, Wallace Stevens, Reynolds Price, Flannery O’Connor, e. e. cummings, Seamus Heaney, Rita Dove, Ted Kooser, Barry Lopez, Mary Oliver and Kathryn Stripling Byer. We are also desperately seeking new writers whose names and work will someday be as recognizable as those above.
