From the top left corner of the frame protruded the jagged edge of a tin roof and in the bottom right, a fat frog, resplendent green, sat on a solitary red brick rising from the waters like an island.

Hoosier Journal Spotlight: Booth and “How to Make a Beginning” by Aubrey Ryan

This spring, Indiana Review conducted interviews with other Indiana journals. We were driven by a few questions:  What does it mean to be a Midwestern or Hoosier journal? What does it mean to be a member of a literary community? What are our Hoosier neighbors up to? What do they seek for their publications?

Robert Stapleton, Founder and Editor of Booth, which is published out of Butler University in Indianapolis, IN, was kind enough to answer a few questions for our final installment for the spring semester. We talked about Booth‘s namesake, the literary community in Butler University and Indianapolis, and enduring advice from William Faulkner. Be sure to check out a gorgeous poem, “How to Make a Beginning” by Aubrey Ryan, at the end!

Here is our inaugural interview with Sycamore Review‘s Editor-in-Chief, Anthony Paul Sutton, with one of their favorite published stories included at the end.

Spotlight: Our Amazing IR Fall 2015 Interns!

 

Each semester, Indiana Review is lucky to have three undergraduate interns help us with nearly every step of putting together an issue of the journal. From corresponding with contributors and subscribers, doing research, fixing web and technology problems we didn’t even know existed, and being all-around good sports–we simply couldn’t do this without them!

We want to say thank-you by introducing you to the team of interns who’ve helped make our Winter 2015 issue and publicize and process our prizes, starting with the wonderful people who served as Fall 2015 interns: Sarah Chaplin, Sarah Loughran, and Dimana Tzvetkova.
