Katherine Mansfield had a career-long engagement with the literary marketplace from the age of eighteen. This book examines how she developed as a writer within a range of book and periodical publishing contexts, reconsidering her writing's enactment of a commercially viable modern aesthetic in her experimentation with the short story form.

'This important new study on Katherine Mansfield, although of interest to the widely-read Mansfield scholar, will also have broad appeal to the non-specialist, offering an excellent introduction aided by its chronological ordering to Mansfield's life and short story output.' - Gerri Kimber, Associate Lecturer, Open University, UK

'An important contribution to modernist periodical studies and Mansfield studies, this book breaks new ground in its comprehensive analysis of Mansfield's career as a professional writer' - Lee Garver, Modernism/Modernity

'..an engaging book for both modernist studies and the deservedly growing field of Mansfield studies it offers new material and fresh thematic lenses through which to challenge and refine critical trajectories within this dynamic field' -Alice Staveley, The Review of English Studies

'...a fine, sensible and sensitive book that, like its subject, will be essential reading for scholars of modernism but also an engaging account for general readers' - Angela Smith, Journal of New Zealand Literature

'...an important contribution not only to Mansfield studies but also to modernist studies more generally' - Carey Snyder, Journal of Modern Periodical Studies

'...shrewd in documenting Mansfield's involvement with and contributions to periodicals' - Aaron Jaffe, The Year's Work in English Studies

'...a fine example of how a single-author study can put the expanded accessibility of modernist periodicals and little magazines to good use' - Alissa G. Karl, Katherine Mansfield Studies
