Rane Arroyo Series selections: Johns, Pittman

Please join us in congratulating Wayne Johns and Sam Pittman, whose chapbook manuscripts have been selected by Ron Mohring and Dan Vera for the Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series. 

Wayne Johns is the author of a previous chapbook, An Invisible Veil Between Us (Frank O’Hara Prize). His first book, Antipsalms, received the inaugural Audre Lorde and Frank O’Hara prize and is forthcoming from Oia Arts Press. The Exclusion Zone will be published this winter as Number 6 in the Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series.

Sam Pittman is a graduate of the MFA Program in Writing at the University of Pittsburgh, and holds a BA from the University of California, Berkeley. He writes and teaches English in Pittsburgh, PA, where he lives with his partner. Mostly Water, his first chapbook, will be published this winter as Number 7 in the Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series.

Deep thanks to Dan Vera for coming on board as co-editor of this series, and to all the writers who submitted work for our consideration. These new titles will both deepen and expand the range of this series, and we continue to be grateful to Glenn Sheldon for blessing this project in honor of Rane Arroyo.

Seven Kitchens Press will consider manuscripts for the 2017 Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series from October 1 – November 15, 2017.
