The quarterly literary magazine the Missouri Review strives to bring readers the best and most inclusive array of stories, essays, and poetry from established and new writers, for whom we serve as friends and advocates. We seek out technologies to broaden our audience and to make our content more accessible to all. Aiding us each semester are twenty student interns, whose hands-on participation helps shape issue content and, in turn, gives them skills which can launch their careers.
