Guidelines for Contributors

File:Alice par John Tenniel 02.svgHow?

If you are interested in contributing to the Lewis Carroll Review, or if you have written/designed a Carrollian publication (a play, an illustrated edition, a game, a translation, a new pastiche), use the ‘Contact’ page, or our email (, to send us details of the book’s title, page extent, publication date and price and, when we have found a reviewer you will be given an address where to send a review copy.

Unsolicited review copies may be sent anytime to the following address:

Franziska Kohlt
University of York,
Wentworth College,
292 Wentworth Way,
York YO10 5NG
United Kingdom

Please include any press material as well as an address for reviews to be sent to.


Do keep an eye on the list of Carroll-related publications – there is an excellent list, which is updated regularly, available via Lewis Carroll Resources.

Are you the author of a book/pamphlet/play/film/collection/video game/etc. you think might be relevant? Do let us know, arrange a review copy to be sent to us, and we’ll find a reviewer.

You may have spotted something which hasn’t come on our radar yet – in which case, get in touch, and we’ll arrange the rest!


Anyone can contribute to the LCR – whether you are a collector, an enthusiast, a university professor or a graduate student.

And next?

Issues of the LCR appear approximately 2 times a year, and the editor will agree on a submission date for your review which will be included in the next available issue.

Style Guide!

Reviews are usually in the region of 500-1000 words, and there are a few, but important guidelines for formatting your review:

  • British spelling, punctuation and grammar, including -ize endings, single quotes, spaced en dashes
  • No serial comma
  • Consult Oxford style guide if necessary.
  • Bold reviewer’s name at end of review, but keep their bio roman.

Below are a few examples of how to format your review – if you should have any questions, please get in touch with the editor.
