Speaking of Speer Morgan at the Missouri Review, there's an entire YouTube series of interviews with him. Many are ho-hum, verging on generic (for example: Finding Stories, Behind the Scenes at MR part I, Behind the Scenes at MR part II, Missouri Review: The Early Years). But there's one clip that's pretty apt called (for some reason) The Missouri Review Feature: Knopf Rejections. Speer does a good job of succinctly identifying the problems with contemporary publishing.
