Welcome to New Montana Voices, a literary magazine dedicated to the relevance of Montana’s young adults to the vibrant cultural polylogue of today.

New Montana Voices is a collaboration between husband/wife founders Steve Moore and Cindy Edstrom, Montana 2017 – 2019 Poet Laureate and editor of Many Voices Press Lowell Jaeger, and Whitefish Review editor and founder Brian Schott.

We sponsor twice annual contests for Montana’s high school aged persons, awarding prize money for highest achievement in three artistic categories — Poetry, Prose, and Photography ($300 first, $150 second, $50 third).  At the end of the school year we publish a literary and photography magazine based on the prior year’s submissions in the above categories.  All entrants whose work is included in the magazine will be provided with a free issue.

We also award a $500 prize to the teacher, librarian, or mentor who merits the Montana Writing Teacher of the Year award.
