The Victorian Short Fiction Project is a collaborative effort by faculty and students at Brigham Young University. It is supported by a Mentoring Environment Grant from the Office of Research and Creative Activities.

As a research assignment for a Victorian Literature survey course, students studying Victorian literature select, transcribe, annotate, and edit the texts. For those interested in the details of this assignment, please see:
