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.
