LMDA’s journal Review is currently accepting submissions for the 2021 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 publishes peer-reviewed scholarly articles, along with work in other formats such as expanded essays and interviews from the LMDA Newsletter, conference presentations, manifestos, and book reviews. 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 and proposals has been extended to February 15, 2021.
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 MLA 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.
For alternative submissions:
Please submit a proposal of approximately 500 words as a MS Word file. This document should include the author’s name, email address, telephone, and institutional affiliation (if applicable), as well as a brief biography.
