New Talent at MMR–Micah Dean Hicks and Britt Gambino

We’ve wrangled up some fantastic new editors to join our staff…

On behalf of the MMR Crew–Will Grofic (Poetry Editor), Gabriela Romeri (Associate Editor), and myself (Rae, Something like an editor), we want to welcome Micah Dean Hicks and Britt Gambino to our staff. We’re so excited to have them on board and have already piled their desktops with MMR Anthology 2011 work! If you do not know Micah or Britt, or any of our fine editors, then stop by and say hi on Facebook where you can find us all meandering most days.
