Issue 1 / 2011Over 1000 submissions were received for the inaugural issue of The Lindenwood Review. Students in Lindenwood’s MFA in Writing Program read and discussed each piece, fought for their favorites, and finally selected three stories, three essays, and fourteen poems that they were incredibly proud to publish. Issue 1 includes work by both established authors and talented emerging writers.
