Introducing Poetry Co-Editor Corey Van Landingham

By Corey Van Landingham, Poetry Co-Editor

Hi everyone! I’m Corey Van Landingham, and along with the lovely Jacob Sunderlin, I am an incoming Poetry Editor for Sycamore Review.

I grew up in Ashland, Oregon before moving to Portland, where I served a lot of milkshakes and poured a lot of wine. I moved to Indiana two years ago to pursue my MFA in Poetry Writing at Purdue University, and that is where I currently live, in Lafayette, Indiana. You can win my heart with pickled anything. I’ve never stopped loving pop music. Aquariums may be my favorite places ever ever.

After being a reader for Sycamore for two years, I can’t wait to continue to read the wonderful work submitted to us and to step in as Poetry Co-Editor. After Mario Chard and Josh Wild, we have big shoes to fill, but I promise that I will continue to read your work carefully and eagerly.

This coming year will bring a lot of exciting changes for Sycamore Review, and it’s an honor to be a part of that. On my own end, I hope to have a bigger presence on our blog, so that you can continue to keep up with news from our contributors, former editors, and what we are reading. Look out for interviews with our some of contributors, and, dare I say it, a podcast or two. Continuing to blow peoples’ minds with the poems we publish is, of course, on the top of my list.

I look forward to reading more of your work!
