MQR is hiring a Managing Editor; deadline to apply is July 9, 2018.
Hearty congratulations to Hananah Zaheer, Bruce Bond, and Michael Lavers, the winners of MQR’s 2017 literary prizes.
In celebration of MQR’s “Poetry at Michigan” Special Issue, U-M writers will read from their work at Literati Bookstore on Monday, April 9 at 7 PM. MQR’s new Editor, Khaled Mattawa, will introduce the event.
For our Spring 2019 issue, MQR seeks submissions on the theme of Iran — its literature, culture, and history, particularly perspectives on the 1979 revolution written in Iran or in the Diaspora. The issue seeks to present a collective of voices and reflections by a generation born in the shadow of revolution. We especially encourage translations from Persian, Kurdish, Armenian, and Azeri languages spoken in Iran. Deadline: June 30, 2018
Hearty congrats to former MQR intern Elinam Agbo, who was recently awarded a PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers.
