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
Meet the excellent contributors of MQR 57:1, our special issue dedicated to the presence of poetry at the University of Michigan.
Our Winter 2018 issue pays tribute to the presence of poetry at the University of Michigan. This special issue offers an in-depth look at some of the poets, past and present, who have made significant contributions to the growth and cultivation of poetry at the university, including Robert Frost, Seamus Heaney, and Donald Hall. Former MQR poetry editor Keith Taylor curated the issue’s content, including poetry by Lorna Goodison, Paisley Rekdal, and Laura Kasischke, as well as essays and interviews.
