Wilkie collins Journal

Welcome to the homepage of The Wilkie Collins Journal (formerly The Wilkie Collins Society Journal), an annual academic, peer-reviewed publication dedicated to the life and writings of William Wilkie Collins (1824-1889). Established in 1981 and sponsored by the Wilkie Collins Society, the journal publishes research articles and book reviews relating to one of the most popular and significant literary figures of the Victorian era.

The first three series are now available free to read or download

The fourth series is being launched in this 200th anniversary year of Wilkie Collins’s birth.

The editorial team is keen to accept new submissions from both university-based and independent scholars. We would like to encourage:  a wide range of methodological approaches and ideological perspectives; biographical and bibliographical as well as critical analysis; work on Collins’s lesser-known fiction as well as the major sensation novels of the 1860s; investigations of Collins not only as novelist but also as dramatist, journalist and short-story writer; comparative, international or historical studies situating Collins’s writings in a broader context.
