Milkweed Editions

MILKWEED EDITIONS, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $46,000 in support of the publication of four single author books and one anthology. Milkweed Editions, an independent, nonprofit literary publisher, releases 12 to 20 new books each year in the genres of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. In 2005, it released its 200th title, bringing more than one million Milkweed books into circulation. Jerome Foundation funding will be directed toward books by emerging authors, including James Armstrong. In 2008, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Minnesota as a state, Milkweed will publish an anthology of writing from the region. A portion of Jerome funding will be used for this volume as most of the writers will be emerging.
