Write for North West Labour History
We encourage the contribution of articles from all those interested in the history of the working class in north west England. Our contributors include labour movement activists, 'academic', 'amateur' and local historians, library and museum professionals and retired people.
We welcome contributions on the broad topic of labour history including all aspects of the life of the 'common people'. We are particularly keen to receive contributions from so-called 'amateur historians' and those whose research or recollections might not otherwise be published. Perhaps you are unearthing the life of an ancestor who was a women's suffrage campaigner or early trade unionist. Maybe you have personal recollections of work in an industry, or of life in a community, that no longer exists. The geographical range of the Journal is from the Scottish borders to Cheshire and from the Wirral to the Pennine uplands, and also includes articles relating to, or written by, emigrés from the region. The deadline for the submission of articles is the end of June each year. If you would like an informal discussion about your subject please contact the editor by email at: email@example.com
