Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
In 1968, C. W. “Bill” Truesdale founded New Rivers Press as an independent publishing house to provide a voice for new authors. Today, New Rivers Press honors Truesdale’s tradition with a dual mission: to connect the best new and emerging writers and storytellers from across Minnesota and the world with eager audiences and to provide hands-on learning opportunities for students interested in entering the publishing world after graduation.
