PONDER REVIEW is a student-run publication of the MFA program at Mississippi University for Women, staffed by graduate students under the direction of Brandy T. Wilson, formerly under the direction of Kendall Dunkelberg. PR publishes fiction, flash fiction, nonfiction, poetry, short plays, new media, and visual art twice a year.


We seek stories that challenge, stories that shift our view, ignite our imaginations, spark conversations, and linger with us long after our eyes leave the page. We invite you to explore, expound, and inspire through short plays, fiction, flash fiction, nonfiction, poetry,  new media, and visual art.
