Joining The DH Lawrence Society

About The Membership

Whether you are local to Eastwood, live elsewhere in the UK, or live overseas, you can benefit from membership of the Society. As a member you will:

  • Receive the Society’s Newsletter twice a year. This includes news of publications and events, report on Society meetings, reviews of performances of Lawrence’s plays and new adaptations of his works, plus articles on other Lawrence-related matters.
  • Receive the Society’s annual journal, the “Journal of D. H. Lawrence Studies”. This fully-refereed publication includes biographical and critical articles on all aspects of Lawrence’s work, as well as book reviews and reports on significant developments in Lawrence scholarship. It also prints newly-discovered letters to and from Lawrence unavailable to the editors of the eight volumes of the Cambridge University Press The Letters of DH Lawrence. The 2020  journal was a bumper edition celebrating the new three volume Cambridge Edition of The Poems. You can find the JDHLS archive on our website here.
  • Be invited to attend the Society’s monthly meetings, held in Eastwood between September and and July. These involve a lecture on a literary, biographical or historical aspect of Lawrence’s work with discussion afterwards. Last summer we also had outings to Newstead Abbey to see Diana Thomson's Lawrence sculpture and to the Manuscripts and Special Collections Department at Nottingham University which holds a huge collection of Lawrence's work.
