VQR Closes Office; Berlin, LA Bombed with Poetry

August 31, 2010

VQR closes their office and cancels their winter issue.
“Following the removal of the names of three full-time staff members from the Virginia Quarterly Review masthead, reports suggest that UVA’s prized literary journal is on indefinite hiatus, pending an internal investigation. The school’s investigation follows the suicide of managing editor Kevin Morrissey and subsequent allegations of “workplace bullying” brought against VQR editor Ted Genoways. The New York Times Arts Beat blog reported yesterday evening that VQR offices will remain closed until the investigation is complete.” —From c-ville.com

Berlin and LA are “bombed” with poetry.
