This project aims to make a TEI-encoded edition of the letters and diaries of popular Victorian novelist Dinah Mulock Craik available for the first time. Over 1,000 letters and 14 years of diaries exist in archives across the US and the UK, including the University of California at Los Angeles, Princeton University, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, the British Library and the National Library of Scotland. Craik's correspondence has never been published before, and offers us insight into the material conditions that could sustain a Victorian woman writer's career for upwards of forty years. The TEI-transcriptions published here are currently works-in-progress. We welcome feedback as we refine our work.
