The Iowa Review announced today that it will expand its literary offerings with a new book imprint showcasing the best in contemporary fiction. In collaboration with the University of Iowa Press, The Iowa Review Series in Fiction will publish two innovative novels per year beginning in 2018.
“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,” says TIR editor Harilaos Stecopoulos. “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 Series’ advisory board includes Lan Samantha Chang, John Freeman, Amelia Gray, Garth Greenwell, Porochista Khakpour, Rebecca Makkai, Christopher Merrill, and Jayne Anne Phillips.
