NDSU Press publishes regional scholarship and literary contributions. Our region includes the Red River Valley, the state of North Dakota, the Great Plains of the United States and the Prairies of Canada, and comparable regions of other continents. Works published by the press address regional life directly. Such works contribute to scholarly knowledge of region (that is, discovery of new knowledge) or to public consciousness of region (that is, dissemination of information or interpretation of regional experience).

Please send your work as an MSWord document, uploaded to our Submittable portal. Your submission should consist of two documents: your cover letter and your mansucript. Please remove your name from your manuscript. Your cover letter should briefly describe your work, contain a paragraph about what inspired you to write this work, and describe who you see as your potential audience. We conduct in-house reviews; manuscripts passing this first stage are sent out for double-blind peer review. 

Representative Authors: 

Denise K. Lajimodiere, Dawn Quigley, Larry Woiwode, Debra Marquart, Thomas D. Isern, David Mills, Carolyn A. Dahl

We seek evocative, well edited poetry and literary narrative that addresses contemporary life and has lasting value. Our books represent the point of view of the authors and are beautiful objects themselves.

We award an annual Poetry Prize of $1000 and publication of a full length book. The Discovery Award is for a first book. Due to unavoidable circumstances the 2021 prizes are suspended.

 

 

Please use Times or Palatino, 12 pt font, 1.5 or double spaced, paginated, with ToC. Include accurate contact info, website, and a short cv. No glitz or gimmicks, please.  We read prize submissions blind and try to reply to all submissions within two months.

Patty A. Gray

I wrote and published extensively throughout the course of a twenty-five year academic career (I was an anthropologist), thinking it would satisfy my craving life-long for writing. It didn't. What I really wanted to be writing was fiction and creative nonfiction. I've made a transition now, and I am working on a revision of a completed novel, as well as on bits and pieces of personal narrative/memoir. I've taken a novel writing workshop with Michelle Wildgen, and a memoir writing workshop with Chris Chambers, both at the Madison Writers' Studio. I would like to find (or establish) one or more groups with fiction and/or creative/narrative nonfiction writers who are interested in the ongoing process of producing work, workshopping it, revising it, and pushing it through to submit for publication. I love to read the work of other writers and offer thoughtful and constructive feedback, and I love to discuss the process of writing. I've learned that I do my best work when I know I will have friendly and critical readers waiting for me to show what I have.
