Featured Lit Mag: The Missouri Review

I can't believe I spelled "Missouri" right ...

I just got my first issue of The Missouri Review (TMR for you hipsters) and I have to say so far I'm pretty impressed. Sure, I've only delved into one of the stories so far, but the presentation of the journal is pretty impressive. It's well-designed, taking liberal advantage of the artistic eyes on staff, making it easy for the mag to stand out among its competitors.

It should, of course. The Missouri Review is one of the "it" mags, the one that published writers brag about. When you're published in The Missouri Review, this is how you react:

"Holy crap!"

"What the heck's The Missouri Review?"

"It's a literary journal. Why don't you stop watching Gilmore Girls reruns and actually exercise your brain once in awhile?"

At which point you'll be punched, of course.

Point is, I'm glad I submitted to TMR's most recent contest. Sure, I didn't win. But the consolation prize is a year's subscription, and I'm down with that.

For now ...

Cheers,

Ken Brosky
