Ice Cube Press LogoTwenty years ago, Steven H. Semken founded Ice Cube Press, an independent publishing company operating out of North Liberty, Iowa.

To bolster its application to become an official City of Literature, Iowa City referred to Ice Cube Press and mentioned its focus on how to best live with the natural world and its interest in topsoil, Devonian fossil beds, landcape art, weather patterns, and prairies.

Over the years Ice Cube Press's mission has broadened; it now publishes novels, short stories, poetry, real-life murder mysteries, and children's books, as well as nature-focused fiction and nonfiction.

To learn how a lone entrepreneur built and sustains a thriving Midwestern small press, tune in to The Studio with Cheryl and Steven this week.
