Article Submission Guidelines

The aims of the Guernsey Society are to promote, maintain and stimulate interest in all matters concerning the Bailiwick of Guernsey, its past, present and future – and keeping alive the “Spirit of Guernsey” both in the island and overseas. We do this through the publication of The Review three times a year, as well as organising regular meetings (both formal and informal) in London, Guernsey and elsewhere.

We welcome the submission of articles for The Review concerning aspects of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, in particular:-

  • Articles relating to aspects of the history of the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm and the other islands of the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
  • Memoirs with a Guernsey connection.
  • Family History articles with a Guernsey connection, including Guernsey families who have emigrated to other parts of the world.
  • Biographies of men and women with a Guernsey connection who have made an impact in other parts of the world.
  • Articles relating to the impact of World War II on the Guernsey people, including the German occupation, evacuees, deportees and those who served in the armed forces.
  • Articles relating to the impact of World War I on Guernsey and island families.
  • Poetry relating to or inspired by the Bailiwick
  • Articles on Current Affairs including the activities of Government and Businesses
  • Recent achievements of Guernsey people in the island or elsewhere.
  • Book Reviews of books with a local interest – if you are interested in reviewing books, then please contact the editor.

We also publish letters and photographs with a local connection submitted by members.
