Call for Submissions

LMDA’s journal Review is currently accepting submissions for the 2023 issue.

The mission of the journal is to provide a venue for exploration of dramaturgy, and for ongoing conversation about the work of the dramaturg and the literary manager and their relationship to all aspects of theatre-making. Review welcomes submissions by all writers regardless of professional affiliation, as well as submissions on topics at some remove from the primary mission.

Review is an annual publication.

This year's deadline for paper submissions has been extended to September 22, 2023.

To submit an article for peer review, please email the following as two separate documents:

  • The full paper submission, double-spaced 4,000-5,000 words as a MS Word file (No PDFs please!), formatted according to Chicago style guidelines. Articles can contain footnotes and should include a Works Cited page. To ensure a fair blind-review process, the author’s name should be omitted from this document.
  • A title page that includes the author’s name, email address, telephone, and institutional affiliation (if applicable), as well as a brief biography.

Inquiries on Book Reviews: Review’s 2023 issue will include book reviews of publications from academic presses. If you’re a published author and have a recent book publication in a related field you’d like to be reviewed, please contact the editors.
