The Ache of Sound, Volume 3, Issue 1


I am excited to announce that I am caught up with updates on the website. There is now a separate page for each issue, listing contributors and links to their biographies. There is also a page listing all of our contributors, from all of the issues, with links to their biographies. I have updated the biographies with our Pushcart nominations next to the title of the piece.

I am looking forward to the release of our fifth issue, Volume 3, Issue 1, in January 2017. Submissions are open for our sixth issue, with the deadline on May 15, 2017. The optional theme is balloons. See the Submit page for more information.

I am looking into making other changes to The Magnolia Review, including an award, interviews, and a contest. Stay tuned!
