Faculty Work to Publish in Literary Magazine

September 12th, 2011

Jean Harper, Associate Professor of English at Indiana University East, recently received notice that a chapter from her book manuscript Horses and Divorces, has been accepted for publication at the North American Review. Jean Harper“I am very pleased to see a chapter of my book manuscript appear in such a prestigious literary magazine,” Harper said. “This gives me great hope for the future publication of the book itself.”

Founded in Boston in 1815, the North American Review is the oldest literary magazine in the United States. Published at the University of Northern Iowa (Cedar Falls) since 1968, on six occasions during that period, it has been a finalist for the National Magazine Award (the magazine equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize), and it has twice won the top award in the Fiction category—in head-to-head competition with The New Yorker, Harper’s, The Atlantic Monthly, and others. No other university-sponsored periodical has an equivalent record of achievement.

Published four times each year, the North American Review is well-known for its early discovery of young, talented fiction writers and poets. It also publishes creative nonfiction, with emphasis on increasing concerns about environmental and ecological matters, multiculturalism, and exigent issues of gender and class.
