We love literature and discussing America’s history. As such, the North American Review is a national treasure of thought and discussion. Since North American Review has been such a lively participant in the great national discussion of what is American, scholars regularly study the North American Review to understand our past and present day. Those of us working on the present-day magazine feel honored to be connected with such a rich tradition. We are passionate about the content that goes into the magazine – and hope you are too.
At NAR, we take pride in our work. With the generous support of the University of Northern Iowa, North American Review provides a learning experience for people interested in independent literary publishing. We are uniquely situated to provide genuine production experience with a magazine that is read and shared globally. We are also committed to the education and further development of the literary publishing community within the state of Iowa. This means teaching the concepts, skills, and ethics of independent literary publishing to ensure smaller voices can be heard in a world of ever-larger media entities.
