Prairie Gold: An Anthology of the American Heartland


The first box. (June 10, 2014)

I couldn’t be more proud of Prairie Gold: An Anthology of the American Heartland, which I had the pleasure of co-editing along with with Lance Sacknoff and Xavier Cavazos. The multi-genre collection from 67 different authors illustrates just as many different perspectives on the Midwest, including my own epistolary essay “Letters after Achilles.”

I am so grateful to Jamie Campbell, who designed the beautiful cover; to Dean Bakopoulos, Debra Marquart, and Mary Swander for writing the introductions to our fiction, nonfiction, and poetry sections, respectively; and to the many others who helped in this incredibly collaborative project.

Prairie Gold is now available through the publisher that made all of this possible, Ice Cube Press. Get yours online or ask your local bookstore to place an order.
