Journal of Writing & Environment

Celebrating Flyway’s 20th Birthday

This year marks twenty years for Flyway: Journal of Writing and Environment. We’ve grown a lot in the past two decades. Beginning with founding editor Steve Pett’s inaugural edition, which featured pulitzer-prizing wining author Jane Smiley, to today’s mobile webpages featuring content from emerging writers and artists such as 2014 Notes From the Field Winner Susannah Clark and paintings from Jake Ford.

Over the years we transitioned from a print journal to the current on-line format. Flyway also became a journal run exclusively by graduate students of Iowa State’s Creative Writing and Environment program.

For the next few weeks, our blog will post reviews of past editions and special republished work to celebrate Flyway’s past and heritage.

We’ll also be hosting a special tribute panel to Steve Pett at this year’s Association of Writers and Writing Program’s Annual Conference (AWP) held in Minneapolis. Visit our booth, which will feature our first edition, even a signed copy, among many of special editions (Asian American, Native American and Latino editions).

In the meantime, enjoy these reviews and republished works and let us know what you think!
