Celebrated and award winning literary magazine the Virginia Quarterly Review has suspended publication of its winter issue in light of the July 30th suicide of its managing editor, Kevin Morrissey.
Morrissey's suicide has been the subject of scrutiny as his family accused Ted Genoways, Morrissey's boss, of bullying the depressed Morrissey. Genoways denies the accusation.

Coverage around the internet has focused on issues of workplace bullying as well as the Quarterly's esteemed history.
