Undergraduate interns like former Contest Assistant Editor Sherell Barbee?

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Sherell graduated from Mizzou in the spring of 2018 with a degree in English. Aside from the time she spent working in the Missouri Review office, she was 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.

“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.”
