Mid-American Review


Medium: Print


Genres Accepted: fiction,nonfiction,poetry,review,translation

Established: Est. 1972, international since 1980



An international literary journal dedicated to publishing the best contemporary fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and translations



Mid-American Review is published out of Bowling Green State University. It is proud to feature both new and established writers (including Rita Dove, Mary Oliver, David Foster Wallace, and more).

Sample content can be viewed here:


The content is varied—prose composed almost entirely of dialogue, or as a “test,” or prose poems, or a nonfiction piece on striptease—and strong literary fare. It feels, to me, like the magazine is trying to be very hip and current, and in many ways it is successful. The writing is fresh, and Mid-American Review’s dedication to international works in translation sets it apart from many other journals.
