Great River Review

We are thrilled to announce that Great River Review has come to the University of Minnesota. The longest running literary journal in Minnesota, Great River Review was founded in 1975 at Mankato State and, from 1996 until 2015, was published by the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota, where the journal was edited by award-winning poet Robert Hedin. Work published in the journal has garnered several Pushcart Prizes, inclusion in The Best American Sports Writing, and a Minnesota Book Award. In its new home at the University of Minnesota, Great River Review will not only provide editorial experience for graduate students in English and creative writing, but also serve, we believe, as the premiere literary journal published in the Twin Cities. As the home of several independent publishing houses—including Graywolf Press, Coffee House Books, and Milkweed Editions—the Twin Cities remains the largest literary publishing hub outside of the New York-Boston corridor. Great River Review endeavors to bring the unique literary life of the Twin Cities to rest of the world, even while bringing the rest of the world to the Twin Cities.

Mill City Reading Series

The Mill City Reading Series is a monthly showcase of works in progress by MFA in Creative Writing students at the University of Minnesota, beginning in January 2015. We hope to create a space where communities beyond the University can come together to experience and celebrate innovative local writing.
