New chapbook release: Cynthia Rausch Allar, Deviant [Editor’s Series]

Our second title of the new year is Cynthia Rausch Allar’s Deviant, Number 8 in Volume 5 of our Editor’s Series.

New chapbook release: Ellen McGrath Smith, Lie Low, Goaded Lamb [Keystone Series]

Our first chapbook of 2023 is Lie Low, Goaded Lamb, a delightfully inventive collection by Ellen McGrath Smith, selected as Number 23 in our Keystone Chapbook Series. Each poem borrows its title from a Shakespeare sonnet, and the first letters of the words in each title map the sequence of words in each line of the poems. Contemporary, sure-footed, and full of surprising leaps and juxtapositions, these poems deliver over and over. Featuring amazing cover art by Angie Reed Garner, this is Ellen’s second chapbook with Seven Kitchens Press, and we are delighted to present it to you.
