Hello artists, writers, readers, viewers, peers, and friends. and welcome to the new and improved Central Review. As you may already know the group Central Review is trying to expand beyond just the magazine. This “blog” is one of the ways we’re doing so. Central Shorts is like a TV show spin-off of your favorite movie. You get a weekly “publication” of the work created by all those people you walk past on your way to class every day. Please be patient with us here at the start of a new year, as we get this project started, as well as several other awesome things we know you guys will all love.
