The Vienna Review welcomes letters from its readers

To the Editor,

Yesterday I read the Vienna Review for the first time (found it on the CATto Wien Schwechat). I liked some of the photographs, they have a dark and sinister tone to them. Also, some of the articles were very interesting. What struck me as odd, though, was the laissez faire attitude towards correct spelling. Those grammar check softwares that come with MS Word obviously don’t do the trick. Coincidentally, I am a dedicated proofreader. If you’re interested just send me an email!

The Editor Replies,

Thanks for your email. This is not negligence, exactly, but a lot of overstretched people who get tired and cross-eyed at the end. The Vienna Review is published by The Vienna Journalism Institute at Webster University, which in reality is a small group of students and graduate students (many non-native speakers of English) and me – all very part time – plus a wonderful group of outside writers from the community who contribute on a regular basis. It’s an enormous undertaking and we just don’t have the bodies to guarantee a perfectly clean result. If you want to help, though, that would be wonderful and you are more than welcome!
