Becker Series closes today

This is the last day to send in your chapbook for the Robin Becker Series. I will be checking remotely (currently on vacation), so it may be an extra day before all entries are posted.

Chapbook orders (thank you!) will be filled when I return home this weekend. I’m trying to stay off the interwebs as much as possible until then.

Celebrating our 100th chapbook: Erin Murphy | Remorse Code

Back in 2007, Seven Kitchens Press launched with a modest, hand-made chapbook: Harry Humes’ Underground Singing, selected by Jeff Mann for the inaugural Keystone Chapbook Prize. It’s a title that holds up well today, and we’re grateful to Harry for helping us lead off with such a memorable chapbook.

So it’s a huge thrill to release the 15th chapbook in the Keystone Series (and our 100th title!): Remorse Code, demi-sonnets by Erin Murphy. Thanks so much to Ellen McGrath Smith for selecting this title.

Rane Arroyo Series: new titles selected

It’s a thrill to announce that we have selected two manuscripts for this year’s Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series: “Alterations,” by Dana De Greff of Miami, Florida, and “Mix Tape for a War,” by Guillermo Filice Castro of New York, NY. Both chapbooks will be published this summer as #8 and #9 in the series.

Special thanks to Dan Vera, co-editor of the Rane Arroyo Series, and continued thanks to Glenn Sheldon, who blessed this project from our first conversation.

Please join us in congratulating Dana and Guillermo!
