NDQ 90.1/2: Table of Contents

We are very happy to announce that North Dakota Quarterly 90.1/2 has headed off to our publishing partners at the University of Nebraska Press this week. This is the tenth issue that I’ve overseen as editor, and the 90th volume of NDQ to appear. I feel like it is as strong as any issues that I’ve seen come across my desk.

Over the next few months, we’ll be featuring some of the content for this issue right here at the blog. If you like what you’re seeing in the table of contents, check out more from our most recent issue (89.3/4)consider submitting some fiction which we read all year around or even consider subscribing to NDQ!
