Our second chapbook release of 2019 is Jim Elledge’s Nothing Nice, #9 in our ReBound Series, which is dedicated to bringing out-of-print chapbooks into snazzy new editions. Jim’s new chapbook features an introduction by David Groff and original cover art by Damon Dorsey. Read more and order your copy here!
We’re proud to kick off 2019 with William Varner’s Leaving Erebus, selected by Marjorie Maddox as #16 in the Keystone Chapbook Series. Read more and order your copy here. And please join us in welcoming Bill to the Seven Kitchens family!
What a lineup we have planned for the first half of 2019! Please take a moment to hover on our “In Production” tab to see a full list of titles forthcoming in 2019. You might also want to take advantage of two special pricing bundles for our Rane Arroyo Series and Editor’s Series!
It’s a thrill to announce more new titles in our Editor’s Series. As you know, we’re about to release In the Outlaw’s House by Christina Pacosz and Arrow by Bruce Bond this month as the 9th and 10th title in Volume 3 of the series. These will be followed by #11, Trevor Ketner’s Negative of a Photo of Fire and #12, Diane Scholl’s Salt, both due out in March. Also in March, we’ll launch Volume 4 with Christopher Nelson’s Love Song to the New World. Then, in June (drumroll, please?), we’ll publish Edison Dupree’s Boy with a Ball and Rogan Kelly’s Demolition in the Tropics.
Why not grab all seven titles with a special Spring Bundle offer? From now through March 15, we’re offering all seven chapbooks, shipping included, for $50. (Chapbooks will be shipped upon date of publication, so your bundle will arrive in installments; please check the Seven Kitchens Press website for publication updates.)
Please join us in celebrating these seven poets!
This was so hard, y’all. Though I’ve tried to sit down in past years and select nominations for the Pushcart Prizes, I’ve always given up, too overwhelmed by leaving out too many deserving poets. But that does not serve your work, and I’m here to serve your work. So, after some measure of agonizing (I wish I could nominate another dozen), I am proud to announce our first-ever Pushcart nominations:
- Guillermo Filice Castro, “Before April,” from Mix Tape for a War
- Melissa Atkinson Mercer, “The Memory Instrument,” from After the Miracle Season
- JeFF Stumpo, “The Hulk’s Lamentation,” from Against Itself Cannot Stand
- Wayne Johns, “Last Testament,” from The Exclusion Zone
- Robin Reagler, “Air Ships,” from Dear Red Airplane
- Beverly Voigt, “Pittsburgh: The Fourth River,” from Woman of Salt
Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series editors Dan Vera and Ron Mohring are delighted to announce the selection of three manuscripts from this fall’s entries: “The Gospel According to X” by Oliver Baez Bendorf, “Ballast” by Alyse Knorr, and “Red State” by Matt Daly will be published in summer of 2019.
Please join us in welcoming Oliver, Alyse and Matt to the Seven Kitchens family!
Guillermo Filice Castro’s new chapbook, Mix Tape for a War, is the newest title in our Rane Arroyo Series and we’re thrilled to release it today in conjunction with his book launch/reading.
