The Gaskell Journal is a peer-reviewed scholarly publication dedicated to disseminating the most authoritative, dynamic and agenda-setting research in Gaskell Studies.

The journal is also available online to libraries that subscribe to the Literature On-Line package through Proquest.
The Gaskell Journal invites essays of between 6,000 and 7,000 words on all aspects of Gaskell studies. We also welcome reviews and shorter articles of biographical interest. Please see Instructions for Authors.
We welcome submissions for the 2018 edition.
The Joan Leach Memorial Graduate Essay Prize Competition will next run in 2018. Deadline for submission is 1st February 2018.
The Journal is published by the Gaskell Society and supported by a host of Gaskell Society events, conferences, public readings, meetings and reading groups held across the country.
The Reviews Editor role oversees the production of 2-4 book reviews annually, of works focused on Elizabeth Gaskell but also on Victorian literature and culture more generally. The role involves identifying suitable books for review, getting them from publishers, appointing appropriate reviewers, keeping in contact with reviewers and Journal Editor to ensure timely production of the reviews according to house style. This role offers opportunities to gain editorial experience and build academic contacts in the field of Victorian Studies. Some familiarity with Gaskell’s works is an advantage.
