We are happy to announce our selections for the Keystone Chapbook Series: Lie Low, Goaded Lamb by Ellen McGrath Smith and Home Altar by Janine Certo. Other manuscripts noted for exceptional merit were The Needles Road by Lee Peterson, Erasing the Book of Pregnancy by Heather Lanier, and The Grieving Bone by Kelly McQuain.
Ellen McGrath Smith’s second chapbook, Scatter, Feed, was published by Seven Kitchens Press in 2014, and her full-length collection, Nobody’s Jackknife, appeared in 2015 from West End Press. She teaches at the University of Pittsburgh and in the Carlow University Madwomen in the Attic program.
Janine Certo is the author of In the Corner of the Living (Main Street Rag, 2017) and Elixir (forthcoming, New American Press & Bordighera Press). She is currently an associate professor of poetry and teacher education in the College of Education at Michigan State University.
Please join us in congratulating these poets and their work!
