Forthcoming: Rickel, Reagler, Elledge

Just wanted to share the word about three titles we’ll be bringing out this winter: Musick’s Hand-maid, a sonnet crown/ elegy by Boyer Rickel; Dear Red Airplane, a reprint of Robin Reagler’s 2011 Summer Kitchen title, forthcoming as #8 in our ReBound Series; and Nothing Nice, by Jim Elledge, originally published in 1987 by Windfall Prophets Press and forthcoming as #9 in our ReBound Series. Our thanks to Laura Mullen and David Groff for nominating Robin’s and Jim’s chapbooks. 

And thank you to everyone who has kindly supported Seven Kitchens over these past ten years. It’s a journey I could barely have imagined possible when we started out with our first title back in 2007.
