Your support will help Howling Bird Press publish the winner of the 2022 Fiction Contest!

Howling Bird Press is the book imprint of Augsburg University’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program. Students enrolled in the publishing concentration do the work of running the press, including editing, marketing, and fundraising, while studying the publishing profession and the book trade. The press sponsors an annual nationwide contest, which is judged by the student editors and senior faculty of the MFA program. The author receives a cash prize, book publication, distribution, and an invitation to read at the MFA program’s summer residency in Minneapolis. The contest is open to manuscripts of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction on an alternating basis. 

Our previous books are The Second Longest Day of the Year, by Jean Prokott; Self, Divided, by John Medeiros; Irreversible Things, by Lisa Van Orman Hadley; Simples, by KateLynn Hibbard; Still Life with Horses, by Jean Harper; The Topless Widow of Herkimer Street, by Jacob M. Appel; and At the Border of Wilshire & Nobody, by Marci Vogel. Howling Bird Press books are distributed by Small Press Distribution and are available online and in bookstores nationwide.

Special announcement!

Howling Bird Press is happy for any and all of your support. No gift is too small. And if you donate $100 or more on Give to the Max this year, your name will be included in the 2022 Howling Bird Press fiction publication!
