The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Michigan Quarterly Review - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
MQR is an eclectic interdisciplinary journal of arts and culture that seeks to combine the best of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction with outstanding critical essays on literary, cultural, social, and political matters. The flagship journal of the University of Michigan, MQR draws on lively minds here and elsewhere, seeking to present accessible work of all varieties for sophisticated readers from within and without the academy. In addition to choice creative work, we publish special issues dedicated to timely themes, such as Vietnam: Beyond the Frame and Bookishness: The New Fate of Reading in the Digital Age, and special clusters of essays on individual topics, like Motown, Politics and Detroit, or the Age of Obama. MQR has published work by Margaret Atwood, Juan Cole, Robert Coles, Carol Gilligan, Maxine Hong Kingston, Alan Liu, Barry Lopez, Czeslaw Milosz, Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Rorty, Eric J. Sundquist, John Updike, William Julius Wilson, and other authorities in their fields. In recent years, we’ve focused as well on publishing exciting younger writers, such as Sharon Pomerantz, Keith Haworth, Michael Byers, and Benjamin Busch, as well as essayists and scholars like Leah Price, Esther Schor, and Lynn Levin. We try to include at least one story, essay, or poem by a previously unpublished writer in every issue.
