The Toad Suck Review, the annual literary journal published by UCA’s Department of Writing in the College of Fine Arts and Communication, recently was named one of the 10 best literary magazines launched in 2011 by Library Journal.

That publication noted that the TSR “publishes a mix of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, translations, and reviews, and it leans toward the experimental without veering into excessively weird . . . [and is] unique enough to distinguish itself from the crowd of literary journals while still being accessible.”


TSR Editor in Chief Mark Spitzer said in a press release that the award “means that our vision is visionary, and it helps to further establish UCA as an innovative leader in the literary arts — not just in Central Arkansas, but in the evolving literary landscape of the country and beyond. We are blown away.”
