Victoria Barrett, Editor and Publisher
Victoria Barrett is a writer, editor, and professor. Her own fiction has appeared in Colorado Review, Massachusetts Review, You Must Be This Tall to Ride, and Confrontation. She has recently completed her first novel, Four Points Gin.

Her goal as an editor is to read fiction submissions on their own terms, rather than see them through the lens of her own aesthetic preferences.

Barrett also co-edits Freight Stories, an online fiction journal, with her husband Andrew Scott. She posts at the Engine Books blog, and on rare occasions rants at her personal blog, The Pretty Bird. During the school year she teaches composition and creative writing at Ball State University.
