The Journal of the Wooden O is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published at Southern Utah University with the support of the Utah Shakespeare Festival, the Gerald Sherratt Library, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and the Department of English.
The Journal of the Wooden O invites essays on any topic related to Shakespeare and early modern drama, but gives priority to papers on plays produced in the Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2011 summer and fall seasons: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, and The Winter’s Tale.
Also, in celebration of their 50th anniversary, the Utah Shakespeare Festival in cooperation with the Sherratt Library will be hosting an exhibit featuring a First Folio. In recognition of this singular event, we also welcome journal submissions on subjects related to the First Folio and Shakespeare’s quartos, including but not limited to editing practices and the use of the First Folio in performance.
Submissions should be prepared following The Chicago Manuel of Style (16th edition) and submitted by October 10, 2011 to: The Editors, Journal of the Wooden O Symposium, Gerald R. Sherratt Library, 351 W. Center St., Cedar City, UT 84720; or via email to: email@example.com.
