Following the success of the ‘British Women’s Writing 1930 to 1960’ Conference last month, Jane and I are pushing ahead with plans for an essay collection using some of the best papers from the day.
So, the first stage is to gauge interest from those of you who presented a paper in extending the piece for inclusion (around 5-7000 words).
Our first ports of call regarding publishers will be Edinburgh University Press, Manchester University Press and Palgrave. Our aim is submit an introduction, contents page and as many complete essays as possible.
If you would like to put forward a different essay form the one you presented (which may already be destined for publication elsewhere) please submit a new 200 word abstract. If you missed out on the day but would like to submit a piece for consideration then please get in touch.
Although it is the summer holiday period we wanted to make a start before the trail goes completely cold! Please let us have expressions of interest, intention to submit, abstract or, better still, the complete essay by 31st October.
Thank you again for your contributions to the conference, and for your positive feedback.
We wish you a good and productive summer.
