Launched in the fall of 2007, Seven Kitchens Press has published over 130 chapbooks through six series: the Keystone Series (focusing on the work of poets with Pennsylvania roots), the Robin Becker Series (showcasing L/G/B/T/Q poets), the ReBound Series (bringing well-deserving out-of-print chapbooks into new, updated editions), the Editor’s Series (soliciting manuscripts by invitation and “rescuing” worthy contenders which didn’t win a place in our first three series), the Rane Arroyo Series (honoring the memory and work of the beloved writer and professor), and the Summer Kitchen Series (featuring three to five limited-edition chapbooks published over the hot summer months).
Our goal has always been to publish the very best poetry and prose we can find in carefully-edited, hand-trimmed & hand-tied chapbooks; to work in close collaboration with authors through the production process; and to present a wide aesthetic range from both established and emerging writers. We hope you’ll browse through our titles and discover writers that you can’t wait to read more of.
