The Missouri Review has joined the community of individuals, bands, books, pets, places, etc. on MySpace.  You can view our profile at

To some of our readers, this announcement may seem commonplace; others might yet be unfamiliar with social networking websites, or skeptical as to their function.  Certainly sites like MySpace serve a variety of purposes, not all of them congenial to a literary magazine.  Let me assure you that The Missouri Review isn’t looking for dates, nor is it hoping to redirect you to a for-pay site that includes “intimate” photos (and to those individuals who have been soliciting us with the same, we respectfully decline).  Instead, we view our membership on this site as an extension of our online presence – something we’ve been building since 1985, when Speer and a group of forward-thinking interns designed our first, primitive website.

Through MySpace, we’re able to stay abreast of what’s going on with our literary-minded friends, and we’re provided with another venue through which to let our readers – and potential readers – know about what’s new with us.  We hope to see you there.
