CQR editor Elizabeth McKenzie’s short story “Someone I’d like You to Meet” was featured in The Atlantic Magazine’s Fiction 2011 special issue: it was one of only nine short stories in a special issue that traditionally showcases the best of contemporary fiction. McKenzie is also the author of Stop That Girl, a collection of short stories that was published in 2006 by Random House, and also MacGregor tells the World: A Novel, Random House 2007. McKenzie has received a Pushcart Prize for her short fiction, and had a story chosen by Dave Eggers for his anthology Best American Nonrequired Reading. She is currently senior editor of the Chicago Quarterly Review. We’re looking forward to her next novel!

A graduate of the MFA in Writing program at Vermont College, she was formerly a sportswriter for the Chicago Sun-Times. Her journalism and interviews have also appeared in The Writer’s Chronicle and the Chicago Tribune, among other publications.
