Keystone Chapbooks selected: Burnham, Varner

Please join us in congratulating Deborah Burnham and William Varner, whose manuscripts have been selected for the Keystone Chapbook Series! 

Deborah’s previous chapbook, Still, was published as Number 2 in this series and we are delighted to publish more of her work. Her new chapbook, Among the Other Dead, will be Number 15 in the Keystone Series.

William Varner’s first chapbook, Leaving Erebus, will be Number 16 in the series. William grew up in York, PA, and now lives in Maine. 

Both chapbooks will publish in summer of 2018.

Many thanks to this year’s judge, Marjorie Maddox, author of  What She Was Saying (Fomite Press) and of the chapbook, Wives’ Tales (Seven Kitchens Press). And special thanks to Steve Bellin-Oka, who came aboard this year to serve as co-editor of this series.

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.
