The Dovetail is an online journal based in the UK at Bangor University’s School of English. Like its namesake in carpentry, the journal values a process of interlocking and is formed from a series of meetings: between the various periods in which literary scholars work; between postgraduate students in multiple institutions; between the critical and creative aspects of literary study.
The goal of The Dovetail is to build an online space that facilitates the exchange of research and ideas between postgraduate students of literature. By extension, we hope to provide to postgraduate students both a set of scholarly resources and a platform for the distribution of their own work.
The Dovetail accepts submissions via email of both creative and critical work. Creative pieces may be poetry or prose, whilst critical pieces may focus on any text/subject/period. All submissions must conform to the guidelines specified in our submission guidelines.
All accepted submissions will be published online in a numbered issue of the journal. Issues will be released at regular intervals, or once a substantial number of submissions have been accepted.
