I’m happy to announce that the inaugural edition of the August Wilson Journal has been published (officially, on June 21, 2019).

The August Wilson Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access, online scholarly journal, promoting the study, teaching, and performance of Mr. Wilson’s work.

The journal invites scholarship on August Wilson, including literary analyses, biographical research, performance studies, historical research, interviews, bibliography, notes, and book/performance reviews.  All critical approaches welcomed.  Submissions will be judged by acknowledged experts.

Material may be submitted directly via the journal website.  Simply create an account and initiate a new submission as an author.

Audio and video submissions are encouraged and will be considered.  Works of verse, drama, or fiction will not be published.

Send questions to the editors care of:
