There’s always a lull between issues. It’s a weird time when the last issue is in the hands of readers and the next issue is starting to wend its way though production.
We’ve even pressed the annual pause button on poetry and essay submissions.
It’s a good time to encourage readers of this blog to consider subscribing to the Quarterly, if they don’t already.
Or, if you’re not sure, do check out the couple of recent issues that you can download for free here and here.
Or, if you’re really ambitious, do check out the archive where over 100 years of NDQ hang out just waiting to be explored.
Or, if you drop me an email at billcaraher[at]gmail[dot]com, I’ll send you a digital copy of our latest issue. The only thing that I’d ask is that you consider submitting or subscribing to us.
Or, if you really are sick of NDQ, I’d encourage you download this copy of Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons from 1914 or this book on Petroleumscapes edited by Carola Hein or this new book from our friends at The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota that’s part travelogue and part book of environment essays: Mindful Wandering: Nature and Global Travel through the Eyes of a Farmgirl Scientist. Or, if you’re really feeling adventurous how about this book: Cities as Palimpsests?: Responses to Antiquity in Eastern Mediterranean Urbanism edited by Elizabeth Key Fowden, Suna Çağaptay, Edward Zychowicz-Coghill, Louise Blanke.
