What Now?

The project did not reach the goal of $6,000 for printing two issues of The Magnolia Review. However, I am working on finalizing Plan B, and all of my backers will be the first to know about this new option. Thank you for your support of this crazy project and dream of mine. Someday there will be print issues of The Magnolia Review. This is just part of the journey toward that dream. Stay tuned for some better news, and Happy November!
