Sadly, a loss of funding has forced us to suspend publication after the summer 2018 issue. It pains us to announce that we can no longer accept subscriptions. To anyone with an active subscription, we apologize for the inconvenience and will reach out to you individually to make alternative arrangements. To everyone who has supported New Madrid in the past decade, we offer our heartfelt thanks.

You may still order individual issues, current and past, for $8.00 per copy.

Our Order Form handles these requests. Please fill it out and send it with your payment to:
