We’re a very active and friendly society and anyone with an interest in Elizabeth Gaskell is very welcome to join us.

Every year, we send our members a copy of The Gaskell Journal . This peer-reviewed publication features new essays, research and studies relating to the writings of Elizabeth Gaskell, as well as book reviews and society updates.  Members also receive our Newsletter (published twice a year), which contains articles relating to Elizabeth Gaskell and information about the Society’s programme, including regional branch meetings in Manchester, Knutsford, London and the South West, along with a wide range of events through the year.
