We publish all 
forms of creativity.  

We like stories that start quickly

We appreciate when an essay 
moves beyond the personal to 
tell us something new about

With this issue the North American Review marks its golden anniversary at the University of Northern Iowa with a new design and format that's as delightful to feel and hold as it is to read and see.

Inside, the issue showcases work by some of the featured writers at our April writing conference: poetry by Martín Espada and nonfiction by Taylor Brorby, Kij Johnson, Joyelle McSweeney, and Sophfronia Scott. We also hope you enjoy Zachary Vickers’ “Placebo,” winner of our recently revived Kurt Vonnegut Speculative Fiction Prize. And, in a special tearaway insert, you will find a newly unearthed, historical gem of a poem written fifty years ago by Allen Ginsberg.
