Update: Becker Prize status, new 2012 Editor’s Series titles

Hi, folks. Just a quick update today to let you know that the manuscripts have been narrowed down to twelve finalists for the Robin Becker Prize; we expect to name the co-winners sometime in October. (Yes, we’re running late this year, but things have been hopping around here.) All the finalists have been contacted as of Sept 20 and we’re just about to update the online manuscript log to reflect that status. Thanks again to everyone who supported this series for another year. Once the co-winners are selected, we’ll be e-mailing you to find out which title you’d like to receive.

Our thanks to everyone who ordered copies of Catherine Staples’ Never a Note Forfeit: the response was so overwhelming that we are still catching up with orders. Catherine’s chapbook went into a second printing on the day it was released, and a third printing the same month (July)! If you’ve not yet received your copy, please know that we’re working on it. And thanks so much for your patience and support.

We’re currently reading through the Keystone Chapbook entries and will post an update in the next couple of weeks.

Finally, we’re pretty much over the moon about two chapbooks we’ve just contracted to publish next fall in the Editor’s Series, both by poets in the Seven Kitchens family: The Vanishing of Camille Claudel by Erin M. Bertram, and Mistakes with Strangers by Jeff Oaks. Please join us in congratulating Erin and Jeff!

Over. The. Moon.
