editor’s note

A year ago, Shyla Ann Shehan and Edward Vogel, both MFA candidates at University of Nebraska Omaha, went to a Jennifer Egan reading, had some tacos, and fervently whispered to each other about their desire to start a lit mag. Read their thoughts on nostalgia, tacos, and the inaugural issue of The Good Life Review here.


This week, Author Jody Rae chats with Fiction Editor Trelana Daniel about reincarnations, madames, and examining family relationships. Jody Rae’s work, “Criminy Sakes Alive” is available to read in Issue One. Visit our Soundbites page to hear the conversation.
