Great Lakes Review is looking for sharp critical or creative nonfiction essays. They can take the "memoir" form and relate a compelling personal experience. They can be a short piece of critical writing about Midwestern literature, arts or culture. As long as it's captivating, brisk and has something to do with the region, we'll consider it.
