A new way to be.

About us.


*SUPERficial FLESH started in the Spring of 2004 with three friends (all enrolled at Texas State University--San Marcos) at the helm. We managed to produce one quality issue and only received two submissions for the next issue, so we shut down production so we could pass our classes and go on to greater things. One of us wound up in Asia, another in the technical communication graduate program at Texas State, and I wound up at the University of Texas--Dallas, pursuing the frightening path toward a doctoral degree. *SUPERficial FLESH has since been reborn out of the efforts of a Dallas area writer's group, "Rejected Writers Unite."

As we add more people to our operation, we will add to this section as well.

Lauren Dixon, editor of *SUPERficial FLESH, is a chameleon writer and translator whose work is forthcoming in DIAGRAM, Sojourn, and has appeared in INTER, (R)evolve, and Kadar Koli; her journalistic work has appeared in the now defunct online music journal Rocket Fuel, the Wichita Falls Times Record News, and the Burkburnett Informer/Star. She recently appeared as a featured reader in Word Space's Writers in the Universities series and was previously nominated for the Best New Poets of 2006 Anthology, published by Meridian. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing-Poetry from Texas State University in San Marcos, and currently teaches Creative Writing and is pursuing a doctoral degree in Literary Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas.
