Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

Albee is perhaps America’s reigning elder statesman among playwrights, the recipient of three Pulitzers, and the subject of countless literature syllabuses. His early plays brought the Theater of the Absurd to the American stage and he has continued his career past its fiftieth year with a Tony Award at the age of seventy-three.
