Arthur Miller Journal

The Arthur Miller Journal provides a lasting legacy to the legendary playwright's significant contributions to American Drama.

The journal is published twice yearly under the auspices of St. Francis College in cooperation with the Arthur Miller Society and the Arthur Miller Centre at the University of East Anglia.

Students can apply for internships where they will take part in the complete creative and publishing process that goes into the creation of the journal.


The Arthur Miller Journal welcomes essays on any aspect of Miller's life, work, career, and connections to other playwrights. We invite book, film, production, and performance reviews. We are also interested in publishing teaching notes and short notes regarding new approaches to Miller and his work.
