In the land of speculation & seismography: poems by Celeste Gainey. Number 2 in the second volume of our limited-edition Summer Kitchen Series, publishing Monday, July 25. Thanks to a wave of pre-orders, this title sold out quickly, but the last three titles in this year’s series are still available.
Zowie! The pre-orders have flooded in for Celeste Gainey’s chapbook, and right now we have only
three two copies left. If you have placed an order through snailmail, please e-mail us immediately and we’ll hold you a copy: sevenkitchens at yahoo dot com. Once our copies are spoken for, you’ll have to contact Celeste about purchasing directly from the author. Also, this means that if you were planning to buy the whole set–all five titles with free shipping–there are only three two chances left to do so.
Thanks for your overwhelming support of this title, and congratulations to Celeste!
June 21 update: That’s it, folks. This title is sold out. Thank you all so much!

The results are in: this year’s guest judge, Eloise Klein Healy, has selected Austin Gray’s “The Mystery of Horses” as the winning manuscript among writers with no previous chapbook publication for this year’s Robin Becker Chapbook Prize. The runner-up manuscript was Celeste Gainey’s “In the Land of Speculation & Seismography.”
From the manuscripts by writers with previous chapbook or book publication, Eloise has selected Christina Hutchins’ “Radiantly We Inhabit the Air.” The runner-up manuscript was Jeremy Halinen’s “Bromide.”
Christina’s chapbook will be published in January 2011, and Austin’s will be published in February 2011.
We want to thank everyone who submitted work and shared the word this year. Special thanks to Eloise Klein Healy for serving as this year’s judge. Next year’s Robin Becker Series has a new reading period: March 1 to April 15, 2011. Please mark your calendars!
