The William Carlos Williams Society was officially founded in the fall of 1979 and was granted allied organization status with the Modern Language Association in 1983. The Society’s purpose is to encourage and advance the study of Williams’s writing and its relationships to modern poetry and other literary forms, both American and foreign. The Society achieves this goal in several ways, primarily through the publication of the William Carlos Williams Review and the organization of panels on varying aspects of the poet’s work at both the MLA and ALA annual conventions. The Society website is News and calls for papers are circulated through a free emailed newsletter which can be subscribed to by contacting the Society president Mark C. Long at:

The Society hosts an international biennial round-table conference dedicated to Williams studies which was inaugurated at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany in 2005. The conference was held at William Paterson University from 2009 to 2017, the Center for American Studies in Rome, Italy (2019), and Arrupe College of Loyola University and the Poetry Foundation in Chicago (2022). Since 2012, the Society has secured its status as a Non-Profit Organization.

Submissions to the William Carlos Williams Review should represent original work and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submissions are reviewed by the editor and, when appropriate, sent out for double-blind review. All submissions receive at least one substantive written assessment. Essays are evaluated for clarity of argument, persuasiveness of evidence, and contribution to scholarly debate. Reviewers make one of the following recommendations: accept, accept with minor revisions, accept with major revisions, revise and resubmit, or decline for publication. Revised essays are assessed by the editor and also, when appropriate, by outside reviewers. Book reviews (minimum 1500 words) and longer review essays are also welcome, and the review process is similar. The time from submission to initial decision is typically two months.
