Minnesota: Land of 10,000 Presses

Although the official moto of Minnesota (my home state) is the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the Association of Writers and Writers Programs (AWP) has renamed it the Land of 10,000 Presses in its article published this morning. Why? Because “many consider the Twin Cities, with their concentration and variety of publishers, literary organizations, and related businesses, second only to New York City in literary activity.”


Check out the AWP article here:

Western Great Lakes: Land of 10,000 Presses

Minnesota is book country

As a young writer, exploring all the literary opportunities and events in the Twin Cities area is something I am truly grateful for! And outside the literary community, its a beautiful, friendly state with so much to offer.
