The Albee Review—a publication of The Edward Albee Society (see below)—is a new, annual peer-reviewed journal (initially electronic and then print) meant to provide an outlet for scholarship and criticism on, or related to, Edward Albee and his works. While the journal welcomes different approaches—in keeping with Albee's own view that drama is literature—The Albee Review is especially interested in articles that examine Albee's plays as dramatic literature.

To submit an article to The Albee Review, please email your double-spaced article as an MS Word attachment. While the journal prefers articles to be 5,000-7,000 words in length, articles between 3,000-9,000 words will be considered. Given that articles undergo a double-blind peer-review by the Advisory Board (see below), please remove all references to the author's name and institution in the article and, in your email submission, attach a separate MS Word document that contains the article's title, author's name and affiliation, and the author's contact information. Articles should be cited and formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed.) and use endnotes exclusively. Simultaneous submissions are not accepted. Please email your submissions to the Editor: Michael Y. Bennett,

Inquires about performance reviews should be sent to the Performance Review Editor: J. Chris Westgate,

The newly-formed Edward Albee Society is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the study of the life and works of Edward Albee, and the drama and theatre for which his work was in large part the instigator and model. The purposes of The Edward Albee Society are to be carried out by forming an international organization whose members will join in the exploration of Albee¹s life and works by means of historical and critical writing, artistic performances on stage, film, television, radio and recordings by the amassing of historical documentation, and by publications and conference presentations devoted to Albee and his plays. The subjects of study shall include not only Albee and his works, but all aspects of the American and World Theatre he has affected by his own work in theatre as a playwright, director and producer. Furthermore the Albee Society will support efforts that affirm the notion of drama as literature, and encourage projects that support new dramatic work by new playwrights, as an extension of Edward Albee¹s own Playwrights Unit, which he founded in 1963 with his producing partners Richard Barr and Clinton Wilder.
