Glass art used in back matter of Accident

I am very pleased to announce that Accident is now available. As well as the wonderful art she provided to form the basis for the cover, we found many illustrations amongst Janet Kelman’s other glass art. Of course, the poetry is what you will want to buy this book for!

Full details.

Artwork for Accident

Photo of glass art for AccidentI had a great visit today with Janet Kelman and I believe I have found the cover for Accident in this piece of glass art. It might not be visible in this photograph, but it has a crack from an “accident”. I’ll get Colin to make a more formal photograph which we’ll be able to crop for use on the cover.

Julia Knowlton wins 2018 Georgia Author the Year

Julia Knowlton has been awarded Georgia’s 2018 Author of the Year in the poetry chapbook category for The Café of Unintelligible Desire. The category judge, Nicholas Goodly, praises the collection as “… a quiet place. The poems inside move slowly, the pacing is lyrical, and their shape is spacious and full of breath. Knowlton uses the space she’s created and takes her time to deliver stirring, even overwhelming emotional work.” Congratulations Julia!

New manuscript from Holly Wren Spaulding

We’re excited to announce Holly’s upcoming chapbook, Ghost Lexicon, to be published in 2020. Ghost Lexicon will pair poetry with prose to explore the erasure of the natural world through the disappearance of the vocabulary to describe it.

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.
