We’re just mailing out proof copies for this year’s Rane Arroyo Series selections and even though it’s a bit behind schedule (volunteers are always welcome, y’all) I do hope you can feel the anticipation and growing excitement as we move ahead with fabulous chapbooks by Oliver Baez Bendorf, Alyse Knorr, and Matt Daly!
Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series editors Dan Vera and Ron Mohring are delighted to announce the selection of three manuscripts from this fall’s entries: “The Gospel According to X” by Oliver Baez Bendorf, “Ballast” by Alyse Knorr, and “Red State” by Matt Daly will be published in summer of 2019.
