Hi guys! Courtney Floyd, here.

I'm a PhD Candidate in nineteenth-century literature and print culture and I want to talk to you about Victorian writers.

You've probably heard about Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, and maybe even the Brontë sisters. But what about the rest of them? They wrote the novels that inspired Indiana Jones and those murder mystery shows you like to watch on TV. They created the characters who inspired the Evil Queen in Walt Disney's Snow White and popular detectives and femme fatales. They lived on ostrich farms and traveled the world and struggled with addiction to prescribed medications and kept mistresses--or mister-esses, in some cases. *crickets chirp* I'm so sorry about that. It just slipped out. Anyway...

Wouldn't you like to know their names? Aren't you just a little bit curious about who they were and what they wrote?

If so, I've got some good news: now you can. Tune in to my podcast, Victorian Scribblers, to hear me chat about the lives of lesser-known Victorian writers, read and comment on their work, and throw in a few surprise mini-casts along the way.

The podcast is always free, but if you like what you hear contributions help pay for the website and research costs! Support what we do by becoming a Patron on our Patreon campaign and get cool perks like stickers and extra audio content! And stickers! Did I mention stickers?!
