Three new March titles: Fox! Wiseman! Case!

We’re braving the snow, the bitter cold, and the spotty internet access to jumpstart March like a lion! First up is Walking Off the Map, the new chapbook from Kate Fox. It’s number eleven in volume two of our Editor’s Series and you can get it here!

Check back mid-month for number ten in the Robin Becker Series, Sarah B. Wiseman’s Portraits. We’ll also open the Keystone Chapbook Series for submissions on March 15–this year’s judge will be poet Deirdre O’Connor.

And we’ll close out March with number eleven in the Robin Becker Series, the much-anticipated Something to Hide My Face In by Doug Paul Case.

April will bring Matthew Wimberly’s gorgeous Snake Mountain Almanac as the newest release in our Rane Arroyo Series.

Thanks so much for your support of these poets and of Seven Kitchens Press!
