The Missouri Review, founded in 1978, is one of the most highly-regarded literary magazines in the United States and for the past twenty-five years we've upheld a reputation for finding and publishing the very best writers first. We are based at the University of Missouri and publish four issues each year. Each issue contains new fiction, poetry and essays. We also run interviews with famous authors and found-text features where we print never before published works such as a short story by William Faulkner or one of Tennessee Williams' plays. Recently we did a feature on famous rejection letters of novels such as Lolita and The Bell Jar.
