Celebrate Natural Bridge’s 15th Birthday!

To celebrate our birthday (and the University of Missouri’s 50th), we are sponsoring a panel discussion entitled “Literary Journal Publishing in the 21st Century: What and Why?” and a party on Friday, February 8th.

Want to publish your work? Learn how work is selected? Are you overwhelmed by all the journals out there and cannot decide which to read or subscribe to? “Literary Journal Publishing in the 21st Century: What and Why?” is your chance to learn about new and old journals, to understand how to be published, and to meet and mingle with editors and other writers.

Panelists include: Gianna Jacobson (December Press); Shanie Latham (River Styx); Pete Lucas (Prime Mincer); Michael Nye (Missouri Review); Jessica Rogen (Boulevard); Lindsay Shadwell (WomenArts Quarterly); Jen Tappenden (Architrave Press); Mary Troy (Natural Bridge); and Valerie Vogrin (Sou’wester).

The panel is free and open to the public. It is from 7-10 p.m. in the JC Penney Building at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, One University Boulevard, 63121. Snacks and a cash bar will be provided at the reception. This event is sponsored by the UMSL MFA Program, Natural Bridge, the UMSL Center for the Humanities, and Women in the Arts.

We hope you can join us in celebrating this important event for Natural Bridge and the University of Missouri – St. Louis. If you’d like more information about this event or Natural Bridge, please email Lauren Wiser, Managing Editor of Natural Bridge, at natural@umsl.edu.
