NDQ 87.1/2 Table of Contents

NDQ 87.1/2 has gone to our publishing partners at the University of Nebraska Press, so it seemed like a good time to share the table of contents for the issue.

We’ve rejiggered the table of contents to organize the contributions by genre, although the body of the journal will continue with the free interplay between fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. We might  also move the contributor bios to the back of the journal for a bit more of a conventional, literary journal organization. These are minor, “inside baseball” kind of things, though.

Along similar lines, if you’re attending this year’s AWP (here’s the program), you might want to check out our fiction editor, Gilad Elbom, who is presenting on Friday March 6 pm at the 12:10 pm panel (with NDQ Contributor’s J.A. Bernstein and Ronna Wineberg) titled: The Role of the Literary Journal in Publishing Noncommercial Fiction. Here’s the abstract for the panel:

“The Little Magazines,” wrote Lionel Trilling in 1946, “keep a countercurrent moving” and “make the official representatives of literature a little uneasy.” Seventy-four years later, we ask if journals are still bent on the same experimenting and countercultural relevance. Looking at fiction, we ask what formal traits and conventions of commercial publishing are resisted in “little magazines” and if this resistance hinders or helps the effort to include writing from underrepresented communities.

If you have to travel over the next month, please be careful! And if you feel like some pandemic related fiction would somehow help, please check out Megan Howell’s “Harper and Marisol” from NDQ 86.3/4.

As always, remember that NDQ relies on our outstanding contributors, editors, and subscribers to thrive. Please consider submitting to NDQsubscribing, or downloading our previous volume.
