Undergraduate interns like Contest Assistant Editor Sherell Barbee?

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Sherell will graduate from Mizzou in the spring with a degree in English. Aside from the time she spends working in the Missouri Review office, she has been a copy editor for MU’s student-run newspaper, The Maneater, is a member of the Indie Poets, an MU Poetry Club, and has been a reader for EPIC, MU’s undergraduate literary magazine. As of now, she sees herself going into the publishing world once she graduates in the spring.

“Working as an intern and contest assistant editor for the Missouri Review has shaped my time as an undergraduate. When I first stepped foot into this office over a year ago, I never knew that I would gain so many friends, mentors, and even a family away from home. Being equipped with a strong analytic eye is just one of the many skills I have obtained during my time at the Missouri Review. The hands-on experience I have gained here has prepared me to approach my post-graduate career with confidence. I hope to work in an environment similar to that of the Missouri Review office, where I have always been surrounded by people who are passionate about the work they are putting out into the world.”
