Publisher’s Description: Since its beginning, Nimrod has discovered and rewarded the best new writers in the nation and around the world. We were among the first to publish literary giants such as Linda Pastan, William Stafford, S. E. Hinton, Mahmud Darwish, and Mark Strand. Currently celebrating its 60th year of publication, Nimrod continues to search for living literature and to recognize contemporary writing of content and vigor.
Nimrod publishes the best new poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. We honor new writers as well as established voices. Spring issue are always thematic; past themes have included Crossing Borders, Arabic Literature: Then and Now, The Celtic Fringe, Who We Are, The Arctic Circle, Vietnam Revisited, The Expanding Circle: Translations/Transmutations, India: A Wealth of Diversity, and many others. The fall issue features the winners and finalists of the Nimrod Literary Awards: The Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction and the Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry. General submissions are also included in every issue. Past contributors include Sue Monk Kidd, Gina Ochsner, Daniel Lusk, Janette Turner Hospital, and many others.
As Iconoclast wrote, Nimrod is “simply one of the finest literary magazines in the world. For the reader . . . 200 pages full of life and fascination. For the writer/poet, a seminar on how to tell a story, how a poem is composed…”
