North Dakota Poetry Anthology Released
A new anthology of poetry by contemporary North Dakota poets has just been released by the ND Institute for Regional Studies Press. The scope of the poets in this collection is as broad as the landscape itself, including work by Heid E. Erdrich, Mark Vinz, Debra Marquart, Ed Bok Lee, and North Dakota’s Poet Laureate Larry Woiwode. These poems are about what connects us together as humans, poems that sing to each other across lines and pages and space, demonstrating that, as poet Thomas McGrath asserts in his Letter to an Imaginary Friend, North Dakota is everywhere.
North Dakota Is Everywhere: An Anthology of Contemporary North Dakota Poets, edited by Heidi Czerwiec. Now available from the North Dakota Institute for Regional Studies Press. $12.50 paperback.
The North Plains Ethics Journal Is Looking for Writers
The Northern Plains Ethics Journal’s editorial board welcomes submissions in the humanities focusing on ethical issues affecting the Northern Plains for the 2015 edition of the journal. Submissions need not be focused solely upon the United States of America’s Northern Plains, but the ethical issues which the submissions address should be made relevant to the region.
The Northern Plains Ethics Journal is the first peer-reviewed ethics and philosophy journal in North Dakota. The NPEJ’s mission is to create a high-quality dedicated publication platform to promote democratic participation in social and ethical issues affecting the Red River Valley and beyond.
