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.

Please join us in congratulating Jeffery & welcoming him to the Seven Kitchens family.

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.
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).

Congratulations to all four poets and deepest thanks to all who have supported this vital project by spreading the word, nominating outstanding chapbooks, and purchasing titles in this series. We couldn’t do it without you.
