We are also still accepting submissions for the ‘Postcard Project’ from anyone who’s visited any site of literary tourism – whether as part of academic work, because you’re a fan of the author, or you just happened to be there! You can visit the Postcard Gallery and Map on the website. We are also seeking submissions for our blog, which offers opportunities for more sustained reflection and evaluation.
