The Iowa Review, a literary journal, announced plans to start publishing two novels per year starting in 2018. The initiative is part of a collaboration with the University of Iowa Press.
“The goal of the new Iowa Review imprint is simple: to publish high-quality literary fiction that exceeds our readers’ expectations and leaves them eager for more,” Iowa Review editor Harilaos Stecopoulos said in a press release. “We’re interested in a wide range of styles and genres; we’ll consider any novel that promises to instruct and delight, preferably with a twist or two.”
The Iowa Review is based in the University of Iowa Department of English and publishes three issues a year containing poetry, fiction and nonfiction writings.
Writers are invited to submit manuscript proposals through March 1, 2017. More information is available here.
