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!

Happy New Year!

We hope that you are like us and looking forward to an exciting 2019!!

The press has a number of new poetry chapbooks, from new authors, in the pipeline for publication later this year!!!

Some of these authors have already been published elsewhere, and we are very honored that they have chosen us for their next work, giving confirmation to the high regard we hear for our efforts. Come back soon for more news…

Visiting artist Mary Shea in Seattle, planning for Julia Caroline Knowlton

Last weekend Colin and I were in Seattle, as part of a trip to the Pacific Northwest to visit with friends and family. We were fortunate to be able to visit with Mary Shea who provided paintings for the cover of Keith Taylor’s most recent poetry chapbook, Ecstatic Destinations as well as interior artwork.

Colin photographed her painting, “Bonnard Terrace at Vernon Study,” for the cover of Julia’s new chapbook. Mary’s painting has an intriguing history: not satisfied when she finished it, she tore it into several large pieces. Somehow reassembling the pieces made it work. In the artist’s words: ruining it saved it.

This is the photograph she originally sent us to consider for the cover:Copyright Mary Shea Bonnard Terrace at Vernon Study

Title for new poetry chapbook from Julia Caroline Knowlton

Julia has suggested a title for her poetry chapbook coming in the fall: The Cafe of Unintelligible Desire. It’s perfect for the feeling of unknowing and mystery her poems evoke.

We are very pleased that we will be able to use this oil pastel drawing by Mary Shea as part of the cover for Keith Taylor’s new poetry chapbook. Mary and book artist/designer Jean Buescher Bartlett have been good friends since their days in Cincinnati. Mary has an MFA in drawing and her work seems perfect for Keith’s sensibilities. She’s working with us to find some additional images to use inside the book and on the back cover.
