Congratulations to G. C. Waldrep–whose “Internal Monument,” which appeared in the Spring 2011 issue of MQR, has been selected for inclusion in Puchcart Prize XXXVII: Best of the Small Presses.
MQR is pleased to announce that it has awarded this year’s trio of literary prizes to the authors of an amusing—and poignant—story about strangers in the strange land of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, an elegant poem on perspectives during a balloon flight, and a gritty poem listing the detritus of life at a Detroit high school.

Welcome to the end of news, or at least the end of news as I know it. This week the New York Times introduced digital subscriptions for US readers of the Times online, a move which the paper has been planning for at least two years.
