Jeanne Lieby Sighting
Jeanne Lieby has been sighted in her new post as editor of The Southern Review: “The summer 2008 issue of The Southern Review is editor Jeanne Leiby’s first issue. She comes to Louisiana State University and the Baton Rouge community from Orlando, Florida, where she was previously the editor of The Florida Review.” Jeanne is also author of Downriver, a collection of short stories, some previously published in Fiction, New Orleans Review, The Greensboro Review, and Indiana Review, among others. The title comes from Jeanne’s having grown up “downriver” Detroit. She graduated from the University of Michigan, earned her MA from the Bread Loaf School of English/Middlebury College, and her MFA from the University of Alabama. She has always been a great supporter of and steadfast advisor to our work here at NewPages, and we’re pleased as punch to see her happy in her new role.
