The society's annual fiction publication, The Silent Companion, contains new stories written by Companions, principally for members, although back copies can be purchased by others

To conform to true Dickensian tradition, the magazine appears as close to Christmas as possible.

It provides a platform for established authors as well as emerging writers who are keen to develop their skills in the genre. Feel you have a story waiting to be penned? All companions are encouraged to submit a story, the deadline is the end of May of the year of publication.

We are currently working on The Silent Companion 19. Number 18 will be available to purchase by the general public once 19 has been published.
