'Literary London: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Representation of London' is the first and only academic journal to provide a common forum for scholars and students engaged specifically in the study of London in literature. It is dedicated to fostering an intellectual community that will facilitate interdisciplinary exchange. While the editorial focus of the Journal will be on representations of London in literature, articles in cognate disciplines that will contribute to readings of London are very much encouraged. These subjects might include readings of London in history, drama, film, geography, art history, architecture, urban sociology, painting and engraving, etc. Literary London is published twice a year in March and September.

The Journal is mutually supportive of the annual conference of the same name.
