Steve Semken, the publisher of Ice Cube Press, recently celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of his vision for showcasing Iowa and rural America in stories, poetry, and books. I met him at the MWC’s David R. Collins Writers’ Conference one year when he was listening to book pitches. 

Ice Cube Press, North Liberty, Iowa, has supported many regional poets and authors. The poetry of Salvatore Marici is a notable example. Ice Cube Press has published most of Sal’s work, such as: Fermentations and Swish Swirl & Sniff.

  1. Steve Semken started publishing in 1991. Ice Cube Press averages 7 to 8 books a year and has found no shortage of writers.
