‘There are few more impressive sights than a Scotsman on the make’ (What Every Woman Knows) is one of Barrie’s best known, and perhaps most often misunderstood quotations.
In 2019 we’re going to explore Barrie connections past and present. It sees the opening of Moat Brae, offering a new connection and is also 125 years since the death of Robert Louis Stevenson. Barrie corresponded with him and had planned to visit him in 1894 – until he fell ill, was nursed by and then married Mary Ansell. These are just a few angles: you can draw on plays, prose, people, politics… we’re open to any connections you think interesting or appropriate.
If you want to write about Barrie’s connections, be they personal, literary or dramatic, then please submit your article for the Journal by February 1st 2019 at the latest (as early as possible is appreciated!)
Articles should be no shorter than 500 words and no longer than 2000. Submit in a Word document. If you are using references please keep them to a minimum and append as footnotes.
We are also happy to receive reviews and are open to other ‘creative’ ideas. Contact us as soon as you like and we’ll let you know whether we think it’s suitable.
Anyone who has a contribution accepted for the Journal will get free membership for 2019.
