English Professor Assigned Editor for National JournalApr. 9, 2014
Micah Heatwole, English professor at Lubbock Christian University, was recently asked to be an Associate Editor for the Iron Horse Literary Review. Heatwole will help select poems to be published in this national journal of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and works of art.
Heatwole is a poet, with four poems published in the 2012 spring issue of The Literary Review. In 2008 he won the Cordell Larner Prize for Fiction and had two stories published in Elements. Today he serves as Assistant Editor of Chap Book, LCU’s literary journal which publishes works by LCU students. Heatwole is also a consultant in the University Writing Center and editor of LCU’s yearbook, El Explorador.
“Being asked to be an associate editor for the Iron Horse Literary Review was like waking to a noise on the roof then finding out that, yes, Santa Claus really does exist,” says Heatwole.
The publication is a national journal of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and works of art. Texas Tech University publishes this journal six times a year and has a prestigious reputation among creative writing departments in universities across the United States. It receives hundreds of submissions from writers in every state.
