April 2021 Update

You probably noticed that we didn’t have a new chapbook come out around the Equinox as planned.  There were some unforeseen delays in getting our next chapbook (Margaret Ernst’s June Story and Other Poems) ready to go to press.  In the meantime, there will be a Zoom reading with Margaret and Sara Luisa Kirk (whose chapbook, only all the blood, came out last month) on April 15.  Margaret’s chapbook will be out a week or two after the reading.  

In other news, we’ve been flooded with unsolicited chapbook manuscripts and queries.  Our “Submissions” page has been updated . . . for the first time in a decade or so.  Typically, we receive sporadic queries on submitting outside our reading period, and consider some of these for “off-cycle” chapbooks.  I think the press now appears on multiple website lists, which is fine, but we don’t have time to review a continuous stream of manuscripts.  So, we have “shut the door” for now.  I’ll respond to queries received recently, as well as a couple manuscripts I’m currently reviewing.  We’ll announce our next open reading period in a couple/few months, at which time we’ll update our “Submissions” page again.


Here’s the link to the reading next week!
