cream city review will be at the Voices of the Middle West Book Festival taking place on March 12th on the Michigan University campus, presented by Midwestern Gothic. The festival starts at 10am. If you’re in the area, cream city would love to meet and talk with you. We also have issues of cream city review on sale, including our most recent issue which features a folio focused on writing by individuals affected by incarceration in the United States. We hope you can make it.
