Free Poetry from NDQ and Project Muse

This month we’ve been introducing the appearance of NDQ on Project Muse. As many readers undoubtedly know, this gives us a stable platform for circulating NDQ in digital format and a way to make NDQ available at more libraries around the world.

To celebrate this happy new situation, our publishing partner at University of Nebraska Press has agreed to make some of our content available via Project Muse each week for the next month or so. Today, we’re making some of the poetry that we published in NDQ 90.1/2 available for your enjoyment!

It is valuable for us if you would click through and download something to read this weekend. If you feel like you want to explore NDQ more, check out our digital archive  and the digital anthology of the first 90 volumes of the journal: NDQ@90 .

We would also love it for more of you to subscribe to NDQ. The only way that venerable journals like ours survives is if we continue to build our subscriber base. To subscribe, go here.
