The people of Mid-American Review seek to publish works of fine literary art from a diverse body of artists. We are on the lookout for work that has the power to move and astonish us while displaying the highest level of craft.
We dedicate ourselves to encouraging, nurturing, teaching, and learning from the writers we meet through careful consideration of their work and meaningful dialogue. The writers in each issue shall include both well established poets and authors and brand new voices.
Is your group affiliated with a University, portal or other agency?
Our goal is to put the best contemporary work in front of the largest audience, including both new and established writers.
