But Mousie,thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best-laid schemes O mice and men
Gang aft agley.
An lea'e us nought but grief an pain,
For promis'd joy!


The Burns Chronicle

The Burns Chronicle is the main literary publication of the Federation, first published in 1891. The Chronicle is a unique collection of articles on Burns and Scottish literature and is well considered by academics and literary scholars.

Our editor will be happy to receive articles on the above which may merit inclusion in our publication.

The Chronicle is supplemented by a quarterly newsletter called the "Burnsian" and again our editor will consider lighter articles and news items for this paper.

All contacts should be made through the Federation office. Articles should be sent for consideration to chiefexecutive@rbwf.org.uk
