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!
