Back Issues


In ear­ly 1995 the edi­tor of Mississippi Review set out to start an online lit­er­ary mag­a­zine con­sist­ing of select­ed pieces from the par­ent mag­a­zine (MR) and new mate­r­i­al not pre­vi­ous­ly pub­lished. This was the begin­ning of MROnline, aka Blip Magazine. The idea was to pub­lish a free dig­i­tal lit­er­ary mag­a­zine com­prised pri­mar­i­ly of orig­i­nal full-length content.

Blip Magazine even­tu­al­ly became New World Writing, a name select­ed as an homage to the famous lit­er­ary mag­a­zine of the 1950s. The entire back cat­a­log of the project is acces­si­ble via the links below. Some of the mate­r­i­al pub­lished 1995–2010 came from the print edi­tion of MR, and we thank the authors of these works for per­mis­sion to reprint those items here. Indeed, we thank all of the authors for per­mis­sion to print their work as part of the New World Writing archive.
