    Call for Papers:
    The Lamp-Post
    of the Southern California C.S. Lewis Society

    The Southern California C.S. Lewis Society brings together scholars, students, and others who share a passionate interest in C.S. Lewis and his writings. In the past, the society’s journal has maintained a strong scholarly tone while appealing to the interests of those outside the academy who are interested and inspired by the ction and nonfiction of C.S. Lewis. After a brief hiatus, the society’s esteemed journal The Lamp-Post is returning to publication. We are specifically seeking essays on C.S. Lewis, but essays on Lewis’s circle, e.g.. the Inklings and other influences will also be considered.

    Speaking of The Heroic Age, they also seek relevant submissions:

    The Heroic Age is a fully peer-reviewed academic journal focusing on Northwestern Europe during the early medieval period (from the early 4th through 13th centuries). We seek to foster dialogue between all scholars of this period across ethnic and disciplinary boundaries, including—but not limited to—history, archaeology, and literature pertaining to the period.

    The Heroic Age publishes issues within the broad context of Early Medieval Northwestern Europe. Each issue has a "general" section and a "themed" section. Please consult the Call for Papers for information about upcoming themed sections. For any questions about the suitability of topics, please contact Larry Swain, Editor-in-Chief <haediting[at]>
