We’re going to OutWrite!

Thanks to the help of some generous friends, I’ll be packing up my car and driving to DC the first of August for the OutWrite Conference: Seven Kitchens Press will have a book table on Saturday, and we’re on a 3pm panel discussing chapbook publishing. If you’re in the DC area, please stop by. And if you’re interested in helping out with the book table, even if only for a little while, please contact us (sevenkitchenspress@gmail.com). Hope to see you there!
