While North Dakota Quarterly relies on subscriptions to stay afloat, we also do all we can to make sure that we attract both new readers and new contributors. This means whenever possible, we let readers enjoy the Quarterly for free in the hope that it inspires them to contribute in the future or even subscribe. These efforts have become all the more important as NDQ’s reach has gone beyond both the region and the US and engaged with communities and contributors who might not otherwise be inclined or able to subscribe.
In keeping with efforts, we thought it would be a good idea to make the special section in NDQ 89.1/2 available to a wider audience as a downloadable PDF. This section features translated poetry, essays, and a fiction from around with world and offers a window into the direction of NDQ. You can read more from this issue here and download the special section below the cover image. There’s no commitment! We don’t even ask for your email!
As you likely know, these days are particularly challenging for many cultural institutions, publishers, and little magazines. So even if NDQ doesn’t float your boat, If you can, consider buying a book from a small press, subscribing to a literary journal, or otherwise supporting the arts. I heartily recommend grabbing a copy of the new issue of Hotel Amerika which is celebrating its 20th anniversary by publishing an anthology of some its most creative, provocative, and stimulating work.
