Rane Arroyo Series selections: Tirado, D’Agostino, Rowe

We are thrilled to announce the selections for this year’s Rane Arroyo Series. Once again, we have selected three manuscripts from a very strong group of finalists. Congratulations to Marisa Tirado, for How to Make an Adobe Brick; James D’Agostino, for Gorilla by Jellyfish Light; and Kelly Rowe, for Child Bed Fever. Their manuscripts will be published later this summer.

Special thanks to Mark Ward, who served as a guest reader this year.

We hope you will support these poets by purchasing and reading their work. Review copies will be available; please email for details.

We will begin reading manuscripts for the 2022 Rane Arroyo Series on October 1.

UPDATE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will no longer be publishing Marisa Tirado’s manuscript.

New release: Mark Ward, Carcass (Editor’s Series)

CARCASS Front Cover Bleed

Mark Ward’s Carcass is the second of four chapbooks we’re releasing in May. Number 10 in Volume 4 of our Editor’s Series. Seth Pennington writes that these poems create “a kind of erotic violence that takes the experience of reading and makes it something like edging . . .”  Eric Norris calls it “a spooky book that takes place in a weird landscape of horror and strange humanity.” Liz Quirke says Carcass is ” a collection humming with moments of quiet fury.” And D.A. Powell calls these poems  “Exciting, mysterious, seductive, frightening.” Available now.
