The editorial selection process often seems mysterious. A brief editorial rationale will precede readings from recent Crazyhorse fiction, nonfiction, and poetry contributors in an attempt to offer some insight into why we chose their work for publication.



Jonathan Bohr Heinen is the managing editor for Crazyhorse. His writing has appeared in Cimarron Review, Arroyo, Tusculum Review, and elsewhere and has received special mention in the Pushcart anthology. He teaches at the College of Charleston and is on the staff of the Sewanee Writers' Conference.

Daniel Groves is the author of a poetry collection, The Lost Boys, and, with Greg Williamson, the coeditor of an anthology, Jiggery Pokery Semicentennial. His poems have appeared in Paris Review, Yale Review, Poetry, and elsewhere.

Erica Dawson is the author of two books of poetry: Big-Eyed Afraid and The Small Blades Hurt. With a PhD from University of Cincinnati, she is an associate professor of English and writing at University of Tampa, and she serves as the Director of UT's low-residency MFA.

Mark Jude Poirier is the author of two collections of short stories, two novels, and several screenplays, including Hateship Loveship, an adaptation of an Alice Munro story. He's currently a Briggs-Copeland Lecturer on English at Harvard University.
