The Art of Marco Hernandez

In issue 87.3/4, NDQ was honored to feature ten prints from the artist Marco Hernandez. Hernandez’s work drew upon both his Mexican upbringing and his experiences in the United States as a Mexican-American. The print “Regando el Maiz y el Nopal” appeared on the cover of the Quarterly.  His work used his distinctive

Poem: Surviving Mardi Gras

It’s almost Lent in the western calendar, which means that Mardi Gras is less than two weeks away and the first installment of Ordinary Time will come to a close. It seemed an appropriate time to post Lane Chasek’s “Surviving Mardi Gras” in anticipation of this transformative season, but with a strong grounding in

Two Poems by Lindy Obach

Every now and then a member of the NDQ editorial board reaches out and tell me how much they liked this or that contribution. It should go without saying that just like most of our readers, editorial board members generally enjoy most of what’s in the Quarterly. Even so, every now and then someone feels

Essay: It Hardly Hurt a Bit

Over the last decade, I’ve thought a good bit about music and failure. In fact, when I wear my hat as a publisher, two of my favorite books from my small press deal with punk rock music (and archaeology) and the art of failing. Perhaps this is why Mike Miley’s essay, “It

North Dakota Quarterly 87.3/4 is out!

Bill Caraher | For the last three years, I’ve been editor of North Dakota Quarterly. Needless to say becoming editor has nudged me well beyond my conventional comfort zone. I’ve had to try to wrap my head around not only the intricacies of managing an editorial board and expert genre editors and also develop a

Poetry from Craig Santos Perez

One of my favorite poems in the forthcoming issue of NDQ (87/3/4) is Craig Santos Perez’s “from aerial roots [off-island chamorros]”. Part of what makes this poem so intriguing and exciting to me is the structure of the lines and their arrangement which really works much better in the print version of the Quarterly.

Judging an Issue by its Cover

The great thing about a journal with as much history at North Dakota Quarterly is that its past is a constant inspiration. For the cover 87.3/4, our publishing partners at the University of Nebraska Press decided to kick it olde skool with a design that would have looked at home on a

Fiction from Erin McIntosh: The Doll’s House

The autumn just feels more Gothic than other seasons (at least here in North Dakotaland). The days get shorter, the weather cooler and more abrupt, and the sun lower in the sky. To celebrate this annual turn, we decided to share another story from our forthcoming issue, NDQ 87.3/4. Erin McIntosh’s “The

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. Gilad has been

NDQ 87.3/4 Table of Contents

While we’ve been teasing issue 87.3/4 for quite some time now, I’m very pleased to release its table of contents. As with every NDQ it features a diverse collections of fiction, essay, reviews, and poetry. We’re also fortunate to have a series of prints from Marco Hernandez and an editor’s
