Ask the Editors | How to Get Involved

The Bukowski is the sort of writer you will meet time to time, in many different venues. This writer will be funny and entertaining and even sometimes poignant, but this isn't necessarily the writer who is going to be your best teacher or mentor for finding your own voice. The Bukowski will throw you in the deep end, which isn't such a bad approach, though he will also laugh and drink whiskey while you drown. Be cautious of the Bukowskis whether or not they come with an MFA. Especially if they come with an MFA.

Ask the Editors | How Do I Find Writing Community?

One of my workshop students, a talented, new in her craft writer, asked the question about writing community and how one finds a community in which to give and receive feedback when one has little means by which to secure it?

The Missouri Review | An Open Letter to the Pulitzer Board by Rae Bryant

Snowden. NSA leaker, traitor and patron saint of American privacy. Snowden’s stolen national security documents, what Obama to Feinstein and other government officials have referred to more than once as an act of treason, present a sexy irony. Snowden’s choices certainly fall within the national standards of treason, and yet, Snowden’s actions also make him a stalwart son of liberty and all that we hold dear, or think we hold dear, as American citizens. His leaks have forced us to question standards of individualization and governmental entitlements.... READ MORE

Rae Bryant Answers Questions on Steven Tyler’s Lips and William Shatner as Alien Sex Worker at Quiddity International Literary Journal, Benedictine University/NPR

Q: In your opinion, was T. J. Hooker named after Dr. Eckleburg? A: I have often wondered this myself and I’m so glad you asked the question. I think so. And since you’ve brought this up, may I add that my initial concern with the journal and T. J. Hooker affiliation was the suggestion that T. J. Hooker was in fact, at one time, a real life sex worker who specialized in aliens from a diverse collect of planets and galaxies.... Quiddity is a multimedia arts venue featuring an international literary journal (print and audio), a public-radio program, and a visiting writer and artist series. Each is produced by Benedictine University in partnership with NPR member/PRI affiliate WUIS, Illinois Public Radio’s hub-station.

Something Wrong with Her by Cris Mazza

Anorgasmia, Love and Something Wrong with Her: A Discussion with Cris Mazza

Cris Mazza’s new book, Something Wrong with Her, is a memoir about anorgasmia—the inability to have an orgasm. Research suggests that at least 75% of women cannot reach orgasms through vaginal intercourse, and upwards of 15% are completely anorgasmic. The surplus of contemporary sexual memoirs would have us believe otherwise. Something Wrong with Her is not a book about overcoming anorgasmia. Rather, it is a poignant memoir about a girl who didn’t feel the sexual awakenings she knew she was supposed to feel, and about the boy who loved her nonetheless.

Ask the Editors | Ouch! Form Rejection Letters

Offering personal feedback on works that we haven't fallen in love with would be like that guy or girl in high school who was into you but decided you weren't the one for him or her because your laugh was a certain way or because you wore Lee jeans instead of Levis and so he or she tried to change your laugh or jeans brand in hopes of finding you more attractive. What a dick.

Don’t Fuck with Obama’s Daughters or He Will Drone You

I recently came across a sentient thesis on how President Obama's comments to the Jonas Brothers and their imagined intentions toward the First Daughters could result in a drone attack or that readers should assume that the President is drone happy because he is an overprotective father type.
