It’s a thrill to announce more new titles in our Editor’s Series. As you know, we’re about to release In the Outlaw’s House by Christina Pacosz and Arrow by Bruce Bond this month as the 9th and 10th title in Volume 3 of the series. These will be followed by #11, Trevor Ketner’s Negative of a Photo of Fire and #12, Diane Scholl’s Salt, both due out in March. Also in March, we’ll launch Volume 4 with Christopher Nelson’s Love Song to the New World. Then, in June (drumroll, please?), we’ll publish Edison Dupree’s Boy with a Ball and Rogan Kelly’s Demolition in the Tropics.
Why not grab all seven titles with a special Spring Bundle offer? From now through March 15, we’re offering all seven chapbooks, shipping included, for $50. (Chapbooks will be shipped upon date of publication, so your bundle will arrive in installments; please check the Seven Kitchens Press website for publication updates.)
We’re looking forward to reading your nominations for the ReBound Series, which showcases out-of-print chapbooks in snazzy, new editions in order to bring them to a wider readership. This series depends on you, Dear Readers, so please take a moment to browse your bookshelves and let us know which out-of-print chapbooks you think deserve new life! The fall reading period is August 1 through September 15, and you can find full guidelines here.
