Winter 2017 issue – cover and contributor listing

It’s going to be a big year for us here at Midwestern Gothic. We have two new books we’ll be releasing into the world, and we’ve officially shifted to bi-annual publications for the journal. In these uncertain times, we need art more than ever, and all of us here at MG are committed to continuing to publish diverse voices and providing a platform for important stories.

We decided, given all the changes we’re enacting, to re-design the journal from the ground up: in addition to publishing photos, changing the physical dimensions of the book, and including nonfiction writing in each issue, you’ll see changes starting with the cover design. Basically, we can’t wait to share the final product with you all, and are so proud of how it’s shaped up.

But, for now, we are beyond thrilled to present the cover for the Winter 2017 issue:

The cover art is by Romina Lutz, and the cover itself was designed by Jeremy Bronaugh, one of the minds behind Hypertrophic Press.

We also cannot believe the line-up of talent (including the 2016 Lake Prize fiction and poetry finalists!) that we have in this issue:

The Winter 2017 issue will be releasing officially on Monday, February 13—so mark your calendars.

If you’re headed to AWP 2017 in Washington, D.C., however, we’ll have copies available for purchase early!
