Poetry Gallery

Last night, around 3 am, lightening and thunder struck very close, and I was immediately (mostly) awake. Oddly, the first thing that came into my mind was how like wandering through a museum gallery of paintings reading The Café of Unintelligible Desire feels. Each poem presents a picture for our gaze, and we try to take in the scene and conjecture about the people and relationships within.

Watershed: Hooked

Cameron Scott’s Watershed is our third accepted submission of winter 2018/2019. It takes us into very new territory: the world of fly-fishing in the West. Cameron’s world is exuberant, ironic, and funny and I found myself turning to the Watershed manuscript often during the frigid and unrelenting Michigan winter. How comforting to imagine sun and wild streams. This new chapbook is planned for publication late 2019.

Cold-Running Current: Another Gem from John Repp

Following John’s exquisite first chapbook with us, Music Over the Water, we were delighted to receive his latest manuscript, Cold-Running Current. These narrative poems, always musical, focus on the persistent mysteries of childhood, family, and the natural world. This new poetry chapbook is expected to be published before the end of 2019.

Accident: Coming this fall

We are pleased to announce that we will be publishing Caroline Maun’s latest chapbook, Accident in fall 2019. Caroline is a new author for Alice Greene & Co., and she is an established poet who teaches in the English Dept. of Wayne State University in Detroit. Maun’s epigraph, “Accident is design/ And design is accident/ In a cloud of unknowing” — from T. S. Eliot’s The Family Reunion — sets the tone for the collection and its unique recollection of accidents of human experience and beyond.

Happy 2019!
