The Journal of the TS Eliot Society

The Journal of the T.S. Eliot Society (UK) is a peer-reviewed journal that annually publishes scholarly essays by leading as well as early career academics.

As well as articles focused on T.S. Eliot, the journal is interested in contributions that examine his legacy and so will also appreciate comparative studies (e.g. TSE & Philip Larkin or TSE & Evelyn Waugh).

The annual deadline for submission is January 10th. The word length is 6-8,000.
