founded in 1990 by Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson., 1992-2006., The Shining Scroll periodical (est. 1992) features information about the life and work of Canadian author, L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942). It includes new research, recent publications, and events related to the author, Anne of Green Gables (and her many other books and writing), and locations. The Shining Scroll is published by Mary Beth Cavert, co-editor, and Carolyn Strom Collins, co-editor and founder of the L.M. Montgomery Literary Society, at least once a year. It takes its name from a poem Montgomery loved called The Fringed Gentian. The Scroll is highly respected by both Montgomery experts and casual fans. Montgomery scholar, Dr. Elizabeth Epperly wrote: "I just opened ... the Shining Scroll. I could not stop reading! Wonderful articles! Marvelous research! I just loved all of the pieces and the pictures! ... This is where the real Montgomery research is now going on -- in the pages of your virtual journal."
