I-70 Review


Writing and Art from the Middle and Beyond

John Peterson has worked as a reporter, photographer, and marketing writer. He has defeated the governor of Iowa in a goat-milking contest at the state fair, and has had a reporter's notebook stolen by the KGB—not the one with work notes, but the one crammed with dashes of lyric poetry. He lives with his wife on a small cat ranch in Kansas City, from which he looks at the world at large and screams, "This is not happening!" His hobbies include the great outdoors, photography, and writer's cramp. After many years he's concluded he has nothing important to say, but is still fascinated by how many ways there are to say it.


Price Increase

Because of supply chain issues and the rise of paper costs and a recent increase in postage charges, we have been forced to raise the price of a single issue to $20.00 with postage for extra copies, etc. to $5.00.

Our reading period starts on July 1, 2022 for the 2023 edition of I-70 Review and runs through the end of December 2022.


We now offer PayPal for I-70 Review purchases and donations.
