The Georgia Review is delighted to welcome Maggie Su, who joins us as the new associate prose editor. Maggie moved to Athens from Cincinnati, where she recently completed her PhD in creative writing at the University of Cincinnati. At The Georgia Review, Maggie will specialize in selecting and editing fiction and essays and will direct the undergraduate internship program and graduate editorship.
“I’m overjoyed in welcoming Maggie to the team,” says Review editor Gerald Maa. “Our national search brought many qualified, enthusiastic candidates to the table. Maggie really came to the fore with her wealth of editorial experience in journals and books. The way she talked about reading unsolicited submissions—the joy of reading and considering all that work out there—was simply inspiring.”
Maggie Su also holds an MFA in fiction from Indiana University. She served as assistant editor for Cincinnati Review and Acre Books, fiction editor for Indiana Review, and senior reader for Ploughshares. Her work has appeared in TriQuarterly, Juked, DIAGRAM, Mid-American Review, Joyland, Split Lip, The Offing, and elsewhere.
“I’ve been a fan of The Georgia Review for years,” Maggie says. “I’m honored to join this dynamic and generous team. I admire GR’s commitment to building community and curating conversations in each issue, and I look forward to sharing my editorial perspective and deep love of contemporary literature with the GR readership.”
Maggie replaces Doug Carlson, who retired from The Georgia Review in December 2021.
