Editor From The Missouri Review to Speak to Sleuths

Evelyn Somers Rogers, associate editor for The Missouri Review for 20 years, will speak at the November 13 Sleuths' Ink meeting. As you probably know, The Missouri Review (TMR) is a prestigious, nationally acclaimed literary magazine that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and literary features.

Evelyn holds an M.A. in fiction writing and a Ph.D. in literature. She will discuss her role as associate editor and will provide helpful editing tips. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions of a seasoned editor!

Additionally, Evelyn is a writer. Her fiction has appeared in several journals, including TMR. She has edited approximately 24 books, some of which have won the John Simmons Award for short fiction, the Drue Heinz Award and the Peter Taylor prize and have gone on to be published by small and large presses.

Don't miss our speaker on Saturday, November 13. She'll bring a wealth of information (and she just happens to be the daughter of Sleuths' Ink member, Toni Somers.) See you at the Library Station on North Kansas. The meeting begins at 10 a.m. and the speaker's presentation is from 11 a.m. until noon.

Great presentation today. And so nice of Evelyn to bring copies of the Missouri Review for distribution. Can't wait to read my copy.

Very informative and interesting session with Evelyn. I loved the soft-spoken, knowledgeable way she shared her expertise. Toni, I'm certain, is rightly proud of her daughter.

It's ALWAYS good to get the scoop straight from the people who deal at the baseline--we hear so many do's and don'ts.

Thank you, Evelyn for your time and for sharing the "nuts and bolts" of your field.
