About the Stephen Crane Society

Founded by Crane scholar Paul Sorrentino in 1990, the Stephen Crane Society is devoted to research on and discussion about the author. The society grew out of a Crane conference sponsored by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) and held in Blacksburg in 1989. The society is officially associated with the American Literature Association (ALA) and holds its annual meeting, sponsors panels, and elects its officers at the ALA conference in late May/early June of each year. Its international membership includes specialists and nonspecialists.

The society sponsors Stephen Crane Studies, a journal of notes, queries, bibiographical material, and reviews. The journal is published semiannually in the spring and fall. Since 1992 it has been published at Virginia Tech.

Stephen Crane Studies is a journal of notes, queries, and reviews pertaining to the study of Stephen Crane; it is published semiannually in the Spring and Fall by the Department of English, Virginia Tech. Manuscripts should follow the MLA Style Manual .  Annual subscriptions are $10 for individuals and $20 for institutions; foreign subscriptions are $12 and $22.  Checks should be made payable to the “Stephen Crane Society.”  Address all correspondence regarding subscriptions and manuscript submission to
