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.
We are now accepting submissions for the 2011 ReBound Series, which publishes out-of-print chapbooks in snazzy new editions. Current titles in the series are, in order of release, Notes from the Red Zone by Christina Pacosz, Ordinances by Naomi Lazard, Letter to Frank O’Hara by Steve Turtell, and Slow to Burn by Collin Kelley. Two additional titles will be released in November and December: No Matter by Louis McKee, and Midwinter Fires by Jeffery Beam.
A bit behind schedule, we’re delighted to bring out Mary Meriam’s exquisite The Poet’s Zodiactomorrow, August 19, as Number 4 in our hot, hot Summer Kitchen Series. Please join us in congratulating Mary!
And if you’re in the Atlanta area, please come celebrate the reissue of Collin Kelley’s Slow to Burn, Number 4 in our visionary ReBound Series. Collin will read from StB, as well as new work, on Saturday, August 20th, 3pm at Bound to Be Read Books. Congratulations, Collin!
Slow to Burn: poems by Collin Kelley. Number Four in the ReBound Series. Originally published by Metromania Press in 2006; published in a new second edition with an introduction by Karen Head. Please join us in congratulating Collin as we celebrate the reissue of his chapbook on August 4!
Please join us in congratulating the winner of this year’s ReBound Chapbook Prize, Steve Turtell, for his chapbook Letter to Frank O’Hara (P & Q Press, 2000). Steve’s chapbook will be brought out in a fresh, new edition on February 14, 2011. (Yeah, we thought that would be a nice valentine to Frank O’Hara.) More news about Steve and his chapbook will be posted here on his author page.
We are triply excited to announce that three more titles in the ReBound Series will come out next year: Jeffrey Beam‘s Midwinter Fires (French Broad Press, 1990); Louis McKee‘s No Matter (Pig in a Poke Press, 1987); and Collin Kelley‘s Slow to Burn (MetroMania Press, 2006).
