Lifewriting Annual presents critical and scholarly essays on lifewriting in all its forms-biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, letters, and works in media other than print. It publishes articles that describe and assess scholarly resources for biographical writing, especially collections of manuscripts and letters, and includes reviews of recently published biographies, autobiographies, and other works of lifewriting. The annual is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of lifewriting-theoretical, critical, and scholarly. Its broad scope will foster lively discussion of the ways that various forms of lifewriting inform each other. To promote that discussion, a section of Lifewriting Annual called "Crossings" is devoted to essays that blend biographical and autobiographical genres and those that combine such writing with other literary genres. Given the interest among writers and critics in exploring the ways that auto/biographical writing resists and exceeds genre boundaries, "Crossings" provides a place for trying out new ideas and perhaps for creating novel forms of lifewriting.
