Edited by Mark Spitzer, Toad Suck Review is a national/international literary journal published by the Department of Writing in the College of Fine Arts and Communication at the University of Central Arkansas. Its mission is “to publish the most cutting-edge works of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, translations and reviews in the Universe.”
The 2011 debut of issue #1 (the “transitional issue”) marks the transition of the publication from the legendary Exquisite Corpse Annual, which the Writing Department published from 2008 to 2010. “The Toad” now takes the place of “the Corpse” in rebirth of a literary endeavor.
The Toad Suck Review website includes the editorial from this first issue with a discussion of the contributors and future of the publication.
