New Rivers Press just received news that DAVID Magazine, published in Las Vegas, Nev., will feature one of our 2011 publications, The Muse of Ocean Parkway, in its November round up of books. DAVID is distributed to 65,000 readers, delivering “a mix of serious journalism, lifestyle features, and entertainment information presented with exciting artwork and design.”

The Muse of Ocean Parkway, by Jacob Lampart, is the 124th winner of NRP’s Many Voices Project competition for 2010, garnering him a $1000 check, publication, and national distribution.

New Rivers Press, a teaching literary press located on the MSUM campus, is proud of the students who produced this prize-winning collection of short stories. Serving on the book team last fall were Sarah Bauman, Nicole Davis, Nikkole Martin, and Elizabeth Zirbel—all from our English and Mass Communications departments—working under the direction of the Practicum in Publishing instructor, Suzzanne Kelley. Sisters Alyssa Nelson and Amber Nelson, with guidance from Al Sheets (Art and Design), designed the fabulous cover and interior. New Rivers Press is co-directed by Kelley and Al Davis, senior editor (English dept.).
