As the editorial staff of 2012-2013 bows out, we leave you with our last collection of wonderful poetry by Alexander Chisum, Susan Grimm, Francesco Grisanzio, Kathleen Jesme, Alyssa Morhardt-Goldstein, and Jennifer Pilch; breathtaking fiction from Sergio Troncoso, Sandy Yang, Katherine Hubbard, and Casey Pycior; exciting nonfiction by John Peters, Kelly Martineau, and Alexa Mergen; engaging interviews with Lindsay Stern, Peter Davis, Amelia Gray, and Katie Ford; and reviews of new books by Kate Zambreno and Katherine L.

One of the major perks of pursuing an MFA at Texas State University in San Marcos is our continuing reading series featuring premiere poets, writers, and critics of the English langauge, owing in no small part to the Texas State English Department, The Lindsey Reading Series, and The Burdine Johnson Foundation. Below is just a sample of some of the readings, talks, and Q&As delivered by the wonderful guests who have recently visited us at the Wittliff Collections in the Alkek Library at Texas State University, and the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center in Kyle, Texas.
