GUIDELINES


The editors welcome submissions of essays, reviews, review essays, translations, short prose, poems, and visual art.

All material should be submitted to Jane Desmarais at volupte@gold.ac.uk. Please include your name and contact address in your email message, but keep your actual submission anonymous to allow for blind peer review.

Preparing Text for Submission

Articles should be about 6-7,000 words in length, including endnotes, and book reviews should be no more than 2000 words. All textual material must be in Microsoft Word format and follow the MHRA Style Guide downloadable free of charge here.

Book reviews should include the following head information, Author/editor, title, place of publication, publisher, date, page expanses and ISBN. For example:  Kostas Boyiopoulos, The Decadent Image: The Poetry of Wilde, Symons, and Dowson, Edinburgh Critical Studies in Victorian Culture (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2015), pp. xii + 219.  ISBN 9780748690923.

Preparing Illustrations and Visual Material

While there are no fixed criteria for submitting creative work, visual art should be supplied as high-resolution digital files (of at least 300 dpi). Contributors are responsible for clearing copyright and/or cost implications with living artists or with artists who have died in the last 70 years.
