Editor’s Note: Style as Story

We received news from our production partners at the University of Nebraska Press that NDQ 87.3/4 has gone to typesetting! With any luck the issue should appear by late-November and in time for holidays reading. The issue kicks off with an editor’s note from our fiction editor Gilad Elbom,  which we share below.

Trust the Process at NDQ

Bill Caraher |  Each year about this time, I get a few curious and anxious emails from contributors asking when their accepted poem, story, or essay will appear. I’m always excited to hear that contributors are as eager to get their work into print as we are to share it.

Photos from Home During the Time of COVID

There’s a lot going on in the world today and so much of it hits home. As a window onto the home front, our art editor, Ryan Stander, generously agreed to share some of the photos that he’s taken during the time of COVID.  Ryan frames these photos as follows: As

Three Things on a Thursday: submissions open, a new book, and some poetry
