Please celebrate with us the release of Patrick Ryan Frank’s new chapbook, Come Panic, as the newest title in our Editor’s Series. This manuscript, a finalist for the Rane Arroyo Series, examines Andrew Cunanan: his life, his psyche, his status as a frightening-yet-captivating figure, and his murder spree. It’s an amazing collection. Order yours here.
The first of two new chapbooks we’re bringing out this month is Boyer Rickel’s Musick’s Hand-Maid, a crown of elegiac sonnets, as Number 6 in Volume 3 of our Editor’s Series. Boyer’s also just released a new title, Tempo Rubato, in the Green Linden Chapbook Series (read more here); his earlier chapbook, reliquary, is still available from Seven Kitchens here.
Please join us in celebrating Boyer’s new work!
JeFF Stumpo is a brilliant poet, and we’re thrilled to release his newest chapbook, Against Itself Cannot Stand, as number 5 in the third volume of our Editor’s Series. Follow this link to read a sample poem and order your copy!
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.
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.
