Give Ten: The Brigid Alliance

In response to increasing attacks on reproductive health care in the U.S., we have decided to dedicate this year’s Give Ten donations to The Brigid Alliance. The Brigid Alliance arranges and funds confidential, personalized travel support to those seeking abortion care in increasingly hostile environments.

Ten percent of all sales will be directed to The Brigid Alliance. Instead of a one-month donation drive, we will continue this donation from May 1 through the end of this year. Please consider donating to this cause.

  • August update: Thanks to your purchases since May 1, we have raised $228 for The Brigid Alliance. Thank you for supporting our poets and for helping poetry support reproductive health care!

Gratitude

We are so thankful to Poets & Writers Magazine for showcasing Seven Kitchens Press in their current Small Press Points feature. It’s a huge step forward in recognition for this kitchen-table venture. We hope you find some new favorite poets in our catalog!

A.V. Christie Series selections

We are grateful to this year’s guest judge, Nathalie Anderson, for selecting the first two manuscripts to appear in our new A. V. Christie Series. Nathalie selected The Square Where Ariadne Sleeps by Catherine Bancroft and Trail of Roots by Gail Thomas. Catherine’s and Gail’s chapbooks were selected from sixty manuscripts–a very strong response for our series launch–and will be published this fall.

Thanks also to our reader, Diana Becket. Your care and attention is greatly appeciated.

Please join us in congratulating these poets and their work!
