We are pleased to announce the Table of Contents for the Pop Fic Review, which is scheduled for publication in early December 2011 though Underwords.

The number of submissions received was much higher than anticipated and included pieces from all members of the Stonecoast MFA community: faculty, current students and alumni. We also received a variety of genres ranging from poetry to fiction, to personal essays and plays as well as a wonderful selection of topics. Narrowing down the final selection felt like a blood-letting experience since many of our decisions were extremely difficult to make. However, we believe that this Table of Contents is a great combination of literature that nicely represents the quality and talent within the Stonecoast MFA community as a whole.

Please join us in congratulating the the contributors of the first edition of the Pop Fic Review. More updates on the Pop Fic Review will be coming soon.
