About

Launched in the fall of 2007, Seven Kitchens Press has published over 75 chapbooks through six series: the Keystone Chapbook Series (focusing on the work of poets with Pennsylvania roots), the Robin Becker Chapbook 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.

    Dear Ron,
    I tried to email you a few weeks back. I want to thank you for posting my email announcement about the death of my friend, Lou McKee, on your blog. He was a dear friend since the 80’s, and it is really still so hard to believe he is gone. I knew his book, No Matter, was being re-released in November, and I just purchased several copies, including one for Lou’s sister, Michele, as well. I have the original No Matter, which was released back in 1987, and I am looking forward to see the new copy- thank you for keeping his words alive.
    I have arranged for a memorial to take place at Media Borough Hall, in the Mansion Parlor Room, 301 N. Jackson Street in Media on Sunday, March 18, 2011 at 1 pm. His sister is working with me to coordinate get display board, photographs, yearbooks, awards, etc., and some of his old friends will come and read his poems (some of them I know you know), including Joseph Farley, Dan Hoffman, Harry Humes, WD Ehrhart, Paul Martin, Elaine Terranova, Ray Greenblatt.
    If you can get me a promotional flyer for No Matter, I would like to make copies and have them available at his memorial.
    Some supporters/staffers of the lit mag I edit (Mad Poets Review) & long time members of the Mad Poets Society have made donations so we can publish Lou’s unpublished works. I have started to collect his unpublished works and it will take time, but there is a group of Lou’s friends who are dedicated to seeing this happen. Again, thanks for your kind words about Lou and for posting the info. I wanted to thank you so much for doing that. I also followed the link on your site to Lilliput Review’s “Issa’s Untidy Hut” and the stories there, as well.
    It is so heart-warming to read the posts and how much his friendship and his memorable poems were appreciated.
    He will be so missed by his family, friends and fans.
    Thank you again for everything.
    Sincerely, Eileen (D’Angelo).
