Western American Literature’s New Home

In the latest issue of Western American Literature, Fall 2013, Editor Melody Graulich writes her last editor’s note. On July 1, 2013 Utah State University ended all funding for the magazine. The magazine will find a new home with new editors at the University of Nebraska Press, “a very natural home for our journal,” she writes. Tom Lynch will take over as the new editor, taking into effect some of the decisions Graulich has already made for the upcoming issues.

“Since 1979, the Western Literature Association has been my professional and emotional safety net and home base,” writes Graulich. “You all are the most supportive, generous, smart, unpretentious, and fun collection of friends I could ever have. I have loved editing our journal . . . I’ll be around WLA for a few more years (at least), but for now, I’m glad to be able to hand WAL off into Tom’s more-than-capable hands.”
