Fall 2011 Issue of South Dakota Review in the Mail!

SDR is recently back from AWP, where it was so nice to meet so many of our contributors and subscribers! Yesterday, staff members sent out the newly-pressed and autumnally mooncake-ish fall issue. We can’t wait for you to see it! Yes, it’s true, that autumn was a while back, and I confess that we’re running a bit behind schedule, but hope to get caught up again over the next couple of issues or so. Historically, though, SDR’s seasons have always been somewhat quirkily after-the-fact. Seasons after the season. We’ve come to find this sort of endearing. We hope you do, too.
