Howling Bird Press publishes the best in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. We run an annual nationwide contest in alternating genres (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction). We are the imprint of Augsburg University's MFA in Creative Writing Program. As a teaching press, we are staffed by graduate students and led by a faculty member with extensive experience in literary publishing. We pride ourselves on being a community as much as a press, as we strive to develop relationships between authors, editors, teachers, students, and readers.
