Anyone may nominate an out-of-print chapbook, and you also have the opportunity to write an introductory preface to the new edition. Full guidelines are here. You can also browse (and order!) any of the titles in this important series.

We are thrilled to unveil a preview of Diane LeBlanc’s forthcoming chapbook, This Space for Message, number 4 in volume three of the Seven Kitchens Press Editor’s Series.
Many, many thanks to Guillermo Filice Castro for the use of his photograph, “Blue I Love You,” for the (gorgeous) cover.
