The Hazlitt Review

The Hazlitt Society publishes The Hazlitt Review (ISSN 1757-8299), an annual peer-reviewed journal, the first internationally to be devoted to Hazlitt studies. The Hazlitt Review aims to promote and maintain Hazlitt's standing, both in the academy and to a wider readership, by providing a forum for new writing on Hazlitt and the Romantic period by scholars and lay readers alike. 


We invite essays of 4,000 to 9,000 words in length on any aspect of William Hazlitt's work and life; articles relating Hazlitt to other authors, or broader Romantic topics, contexts, and circles, are also expressly welcome, as are reviews of relevant books, exhibitions, or events.

Contributions should follow MHRA citation style and should be sent by email to James Whitehead or Philipp Hunnekuhl. Submissions will be considered year-round, but must be received by 1st March to be considered for publication in the same year's Review. We regret that we cannot publish material already published or submitted elsewhere.  Contributors who require their articles to be open access (under the RCUK policy effective from the 1st April 2013) should indicate this, and they will be made fully and freely available on this website after publication. Because The Hazlitt Review is published directly by the Hazlitt Society and not by a third-party journal publisher, authors retain all rights to their work.


To subscribe to The Hazlitt Review as an individual, become a member of the Hazlitt Society and you will automatically receive a copy annually. The journal is distributed each year at the annual lecture and by post afterwards, usually in October. Back issues can also be provided to members with an active subscription, and PDFs of earlier issues can be also accessed on the Back Issues page.

Subscriptions include full membership of the Hazlitt Society and are £10 (UK) or $24/£15 (international) annually. Payments for individual members are preferred by PayPal (button below) or by standing order (account details on request).

Please address any enquiries to hazlittsociety@gmail.com.

Finally, although we are now trying to minimise the handling of cheques, you can also join the Society and subscribe to the Review by sending a cheque, payable to 'The Hazlitt Society', to Dr James Whitehead, Humanities and Social Science, Liverpool John Moores University, John Foster Building, 80-98 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, L3 5UZ.
