We are thrilled to announce the selections for this year’s Rane Arroyo Series. Once again, we have selected three manuscripts from a very strong group of finalists. Congratulations to
Marisa Tirado, for How to Make an Adobe Brick; James D’Agostino, for Gorilla by Jellyfish Light; and Kelly Rowe, for Child Bed Fever. Their manuscripts will be published later this summer.
Special thanks to Mark Ward, who served as a guest reader this year.
We hope you will support these poets by purchasing and reading their work. Review copies will be available; please email for details.
We will begin reading manuscripts for the 2022 Rane Arroyo Series on October 1.
UPDATE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will no longer be publishing Marisa Tirado’s manuscript.
We are so excited to release these two new chapbooks today:
No New Wilderness by Andrew Rahal and She by Theadora Siranian are Number 14 and 15 in our Rane Arroyo Series. Along with Finding Helen by Pamela Sumners, these three titles were selected by Dan Vera and Ron Mohring in 2020. We are so proud of this amazing trio.
Please join us in celebrating the release of our newest chapbook: Finding Helen by Pamela Sumners is the first of three titles selected by Dan Vera and Ron Mohring in 2020 for the Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series. The other titles will be out in a couple of weeks. Read a sample poem and order Pamela’s chapbook here.
