Read full description of the books:
Twenty-two essays tell the story of a small, independent nonprofit press, established in a dusty shed in 1968, that has transitioned during its most recent two decades into a university-based teaching press, setting the standard for practical, hands-on experience in the national publication of fine literary prose and poetry.
Among the essayists are:
Charles Baxter: author of The Feast of Love, a finalist for the National Book Award and released as a movie starring Morgan Freeman, who had his first book--Chameleon--published by C.W. "Bill" Truesdale and New Rivers Press,
Mark Vinz: poet, teacher, and publisher; the author of more than fifteen poetry collections; winner of three Minnesota Book Awards and the 2014 winner of the Kay Sexton Award for long-standing dedication and outstanding work in fostering books, reading and literary activity in Minnesota,
Deborah Keenan: former editor for Milkweed Editions, winner of the 1991 American Book Award, and New Rivers Press's first winner of the Minnesota Voices Project (now the Many Voices Project) prize for poetry,
Clint McCown: Twice winner of the American Fiction Prize, author of four novels and numerous short stories, essays, and poems, and a former actor with the National Shakespeare Company,
David Haynes: author of six critically acclaimed novels and five children's books,
and 10 previously unpublished poems by Minnesota's Poet Laureate Joyce Sutphen.
Is it fair for me to rank an anthology that I, my assistant editor (Alicia Strnad Hoalcraft), and a couple dozen of my publishing students produced? Well, I can say without (and with) bias that the essays here are superb.
