The International Journal of Welsh Writing in English invites submissions for its first issue, which is going to be published in September 2013 by University of Wales Press.

The remit of the journal is to publish new research within the field of Welsh writing in English. We explicitly encourage comparative approaches, drawing not only on cognate disciplines (such as cultural studies, history, drama/performance, creative writing, film/media studies) but also making entirely new connections with disciplines such as medicine (medical humanities), computer science (digital humanities), (applied) mathematics (statistical methodologies within the humanities), and environmental science (environment, culture, place). The journal seeks to promote work which brings English-language material into the richest of dialogues with Welsh-language literary culture. It also seeks to make connections between Welsh writing in English and applied/non-academic areas of literary life, such as the creative industries, heritage, publishing and policy-making.

For the first issue, we particularly encourage submissions which deal with Welsh writing in English within a context of world literature. Methodologically groundbreaking submissions are very welcome.

The deadline for submission of essays is 1 September 2012. Please send your submissions and/or queries to Dr Alyce von Rothkirch at
