August 2023 Update

A flurry of activity here at GBP central.  We’ve set August 31 as the launch date for our next chapbook (The Adorable Knife by Jessica Purdy), Hell or high water.  Which is what we might get with Hurricane Idalia bearing down on us.  Not to be overly dramatic, but we are in the North Florida Panhandle and remember the last time a hurricane rushed through the Gulf of Mexico, gaining strength much faster than anticipated.  We lost power for days with Hurricane Michael and it hit further away from us then Idalia is forecast to hit this time.  Anyway, lots of unknowns.  But production on Jessican’s chapbook has started.  The link to purchase copies should be posted tomorrow, with the official “launch post” set for Thursday . . . or as soon as we have access to power and/or Wifi.  

The other news, now that we’ll very soon have no outstanding manuscripts to publish, is we’re going to switch up our submission policy.  We’ve decided not to do an “open reading” this Fall.  Instead, we’ll take rolling solicitations with sample poems up front.  Exact guidelines will be posted in September.  

See you on the other side (of the storm).
