Midwest was published by R.R. Cuscaden and Ron Offen. Bukowski appeared in four issues of the magazine between 1961 and 1964.

Cuscaden and Offen were early proponents of Bukowski’s work who were co-editors of Odyssey: Explorations in contemporary poetry and the arts from 1958-1959. Vol. 11, No. 1, of the magazine (1959) featured the Bukowski poems I Live Too Near The Slaughterhouse and When Hugo Wolf Went Mad.

Cuscaden would publish “Run with the Hunted” in 1962 and Offen (along with Jay Robert Nash) would publish Bukowski’s Cold Dogs in the Courtyard in 1965.
