During the get-together I spoke with Cindy, one of my writing buddies who is a poet, a photographer, a polo player, a pilot--and an MFA student at Lindenwood University. Cindy is one busy lady, who is about to get even busier. Last night she shared the exciting news that next semester she is going to be an editorial assistant for The Lindenwood Review, the literary journal of Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO.
Cindy is excited about her new assignment and is looking forward to reading submissions. When I asked what kinds of submissions the editors hope to receive, she told me they are looking for fiction, poetry, and personal essays.
This morning I visited their blog for more details. The editors want fiction with believable characters and a vivid story; poetry with original, interesting use of language; well-crafted, honest essays; and mostly, work that moves them.

The Lindenwood Review is a print journal published annually in the Spring. Their first issue will be published in Spring 2011.
Contributors receive two copies of the issue in which their work appears.
Submission guidelines are available on The Lindenwood Review blog.
Happy writing, and good luck! Um, I was kidding about the shopping and Christmas cards. Have fun, kids!
