Academics and Ambitions: Superstition Review, Spring 2009

1109777_sister_studyingWe here at Superstition Review are put in a unique position in the literary world. As student interns, we are at the forefront of shaping the future of literacy. To work on a national literary publication such as this is a unique opportunity. By publishing and producing a body of work, we contribute both directly and indirectly to current literature–while still safely in the cradle of the University.

Therefore, your continued support of our publication not only helps Arizona State University, but also the literary and career world as a whole. As for myself, I am returning to school as a full-time Creative Writing student, part-time freelance editor, and lifelong devotee to writing. I look forward to blogging and putting together our next issue of the Superstition Review–and I hope you look forward to this too.

Welcome back, readers. What are your ambitions for Spring 2009?
