NDQ 87.3/4 Table of Contents

While we’ve been teasing issue 87.3/4 for quite some time now, I’m very pleased to release its table of contents. As with every NDQ it features a diverse collections of fiction, essay, reviews, and poetry. We’re also fortunate to have a series of prints from Marco Hernandez and an editor’s note from our fiction editor Gilad Elbom. Issue 87.3/4 should appear in mid-November, so for now, you can download our latest issue 87.1/2 here

As you likely know, these days are particularly challenging for many cultural institutions, publishers, and little magazines. If you can, consider buying a book from a small presssubscribing to a literary journal (like our UNP stablemate, Hotel Amerika), or otherwise supporting the arts.

We are currently reading poetry and essay and are always reading fiction. You can submit something to us here. If you already subscribe, you should get receive your latest copy of NDQ in November. If you’d like to subscribe, please go here
