Just checked in on the Kickstarter campaign to support the November 7 performance of Ed Madden’s My Father’s House set to music by Paddy Dover: the campaign has met its $3500 goal and is still going strong! Please help support this unique event.

We’re so very happy to bring out Dave Bonta’s new collection, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Number Nine in the Keystone Chapbook Series, selected by Sascha Feinstein. We love, love the superb cover art by Steven Sherrill. Orders are now being taken through Paypal or by query to sevenkitchens at yahoo dot com. Please join us in congratulating Dave!

After a long delay (sorry, sorry), we’re very happy to announce the co-winners of the 2012 Keystone Chapbook Prize. Guest judge Brent Goodman has selected Field Trip to the Underworld by Hayden Saunier as the winner among writers with previous book publication; Marjorie Maddox’s Recently Young in a People Gone Old was the runner-up. Among writers with no previous book publication, Brent selected Wooden Boys by Michael Hurley; Katherine Fallon’s The Tooth-Maker’s Daughter was the runner-up.

The winning chapbooks will be published next spring. Congratulations to all the finalists–it was a pleasure to read work at such a consistently high level.

Due to a significant number of queries regarding the changed deadline (changed from last year), we’re happy to extend the reading period for the annual Rane Arroyo Chapbook Prize: we will continue accepting submissions through October 31. Please note that work will be considered this year only from writers without previous book or chapbook publication. We use a blind-submission process; editors Ron Mohring and Eduardo C. Corral will read every manuscript received and are looking forward to seeing your work! Full guidelines here.

Among the titles currently in production and slated for release over the next few months is a re-boot of Lisa Sewell’s Long Corridor. The original was selected by G.C. Waldrep as co-winner of the 2008 Keystone Chapbook Prize. I’ve re-set the chapbook into a fresh, new edition that will come out on October 1. More information, including a link to order your copy, will be posted soon. Meanwhile, here’s a peek at the new cover:
