We’re very happy to announce the co-winners of the inaugural Rane Arroyo Chapbook Prize, selected by editors Ron Mohring and Eduardo C. Corral: Six Poems from the Codex Mojaodicus, by Steven Alvarez of Lexington, Kentucky, and No Innocent Eye, by Rhett Watts of Manchester Connecticut will be published in spring 2013. It was an absolute pleasure to read and discuss such a wonderful, diverse array of manuscripts. Our thanks to everyone who entered work and helped spread the word about this series. We truly could not do this without you.
We’re thrilled to announce the co-winners of the 2012 Robin Becker Chapbook Prize, selected by guest judge Elena Georgiou: Indecency, by David J. Daniels of Denver, Colorado, and Portraits, by Sarah Wiseman of Napanee, Ontario will be published in spring 2013 as #9 and #10 in the Robin Becker Chapbook Series. For the first time, we’ll also publish a third manuscript: Controlled Burn, by Flower Conroy of Key West, Florida. Thanks to everyone who entered work and helped spread the word about this series. We couldn’t do this without you.
Most of you know that Seven Kitchens is a one-person operation. That person–I–have been facing very difficult challenges this year, most recently (and currently) the threat of losing my home.
My preference has always been to keep my personal stuff “behind the curtain,” but as events continue to diminish my ability to publish and distribute chapbooks, it’s only fair that I make a public announcement of my situation:
Expect delays. If you’ve ordered chapbooks, it may be several more weeks before I can get them assembled and mailed; if you’d like to check in about your order, send an email to sevenkitchens at yahoo. If you’re waiting for an upcoming title to be released, it could take months. And if you’re checking for results of the Becker, Keystone, or Arroyo series, please be patient: these, too, have been delayed.
And thank you all for your continued support.
Save the date: D. Gilson’s anticipated debut chapbook, Catch & Release, will be out on September 5th. Look for more news soon, including a pre-order link. Meanwhile, click on the cover to get a nice big image of the gorgeous art, “Abandoned” by Tanya Camp.
