Editorial Focus

Since 1978, The Missouri Review has held a reputation for finding and publishing the very best writers first. We are based at the University of Missouri and publish four issues each year. Each issue contains new fiction, poetry and essays. We also run author interviews and found-text features where we print never before published works such as a short story by William Faulkner or one of Tennessee Williams' plays. Our annual contest is the Editors' Prize, which awards $5000 and publication in each category for a group of poems, a short story, and an essay.
