The Driftless region of Wisconsin state is land that the glaciers never reached — a dramatically hilly landscape, unpressed by the weight of glaciers, with ore so close to the surface it was collected by individual miners who dug their own “badger holes” in the mineral-rich ground.
Since the miners left, this beautifully strange region has collected artists and makers, inspired by each other and the shadows and light created by ancient trees and changes in elevation.
Brain Mill Press holds the Driftless Unsolicited Novella Contest to select the novellas that will be published in the series. Two winning novellas each receive a $250.00 cash prize, a publication contract, and royalties for the novella with Brain Mill Press. The novellas are published in print and ebook and receive international distribution.
