Interesting Literature is a blog which features regular posts on all aspects of literature, from Shakespeare to F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce to J. R. R. Tolkien, Aeschylus to Sherlock Holmes.
We are interested in receiving proposals for guest blog posts from researchers with university affiliation working in any field of literature. If you can make your research (past or present) sound interesting, eye-catching, and understandable to the general reader (e.g. jargon-free), we’d love to hear from you, whether you’re a doctoral candidate or a tenured professor.
We are aware that ‘interesting’ is a somewhat subjective term; therefore we recommend that potential bloggers have a look at our previous posts before getting in contact with us. Our blog can be found here.
Our blog receives over 1,000 visits every week and currently has over 2,300 followers and regular readers from both within and outside of the academy; our posts are also invariably featured on the ‘Freshly Pressed’ feature on WordPress, with the result that new posts often receive hundreds of visitors within the first weeks of publication. Guest blogging with us would be a great way to bring your research to a wider, non-academic, audience.
Full posts are expected to be 500-1,000 words in length, but before submitting a final post please get in touch with an informal enquiry by emailing Dr Oliver Tearle at O.M.Tearle@lboro.ac.uk.
