The Blake Journal

The Blake Journal is the publication of the the Blake Society at St. James. It is free to members but also available from a number of bookshops and galleries.

The editorial policy of the Journal is to offer a wide coverage of items concerning Blake or related to a Blakean tradition. Past editions have included academic articles, but we aim also to offer space for other, perhaps more personal and speculative responses to Blake’s work.

The editors are currently commissioning[e] pieces for the third edition. We would also like to extend an invitation to readers of Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly to submit their work for inclusion.

Articles should normally be 3000-4000 words in length, but can be much shorter. Accompanying graphics are welcome. We also include short notices of and reports from conferences, theatre, exhibitions, etc.

We are happy to receive or arrange for reviews of books, etc. Please address your work or initial enquiries to the editors: Dr Michael Grenfell, School of Education, University of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, SO17 1BJ, UK. Telephone 44 (0) 1703 593472; fax 44 (0) 1703 593556; email:, or to Andrew Solomon, 35 Hillway, London N6 6AH.
