Background: This Tulsa, Okla.-based literary magazine values hard-hitting, smart journalism focused on the Midwest. "Our mission probably explains it the best," said Michael Mason, founder and editor of the four-year-old publication. "Courageous, compelling stories from the middle of America." He described the typical reader as well-educated and informed: "the kinds of middle Americans who are subscribing to The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Harpers."
