Contributions

We welcome contributions to our blog from staff, volunteers, and visitors using the collection. We also welcome contributions from researchers interested in Johnson’s life, works or wider literary fellowships, as well as on eighteenth-century life in Lichfield and the surrounding area.

If you would be interested in contributing a blog post, please email sjmuseum@lichfield.gov.uk with a brief summary of your suggested post.

Writing Tips

  • Please aim for your post to be around 500 – 750 words in length.
  • Posts should be suitable for all of our visitors, so please avoid complex terminology or explain any terminology used.
  • All posts are accompanied by pictures. If you have any photographs of the event/object/text you are writing about, please send them (in jpg format) to us at the e-mail address above when submitting your post. If you don’t have any photographs, please don’t worry as we have plenty of suitable images in our collection!
  • We like to put a contributor bio on our posts where possible, so please tell us a little bit about yourself and your interest in Johnson and the Birthplace. You are also welcome to send us a link to any related personal blog/website for inclusion in the bio.
