We’re delighted to announce the selection of two manuscripts for the Keystone Chapbook Series: from this year’s entries, Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring have selected Orchard Light by Julie Swarstad Johnson, currently of Tucson, AZ, and Madagascar by Don Hogle, currently of New York, NY. Both chapbooks will be published this spring.
Keystone Chapbook Series editors Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring are delighted to announce the selection of two manuscripts: “Feed” by Emily Mohn-Slate, and “Bloodfish” by Jennifer Jackson Berry, both of Pittsburgh. Both chapbooks will be published in spring of 2019. Please join us in congratulating Emily and Jennifer!
We are (very) open: if you’re a poet with Pennsylvania connections, please send your manuscript to the Keystone Chapbook Series, our longest-running imprint. Co-editors Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring are looking forward to reading your work. We’ll consider chapbook manuscripts through July 15. Full guidelines are here.
Please join us in congratulating Deborah Burnham and William Varner, whose manuscripts have been selected for the Keystone Chapbook Series!
Deborah’s previous chapbook, Still, was published as Number 2 in this series and we are delighted to publish more of her work. Her new chapbook, Among the Other Dead, will be Number 15 in the Keystone Series.
William Varner’s first chapbook, Leaving Erebus, will be Number 16 in the series. William grew up in York, PA, and now lives in Maine.
Both chapbooks will publish in summer of 2018.
Many thanks to this year’s judge, Marjorie Maddox, author of What She Was Saying (Fomite Press) and of the chapbook, Wives’ Tales (Seven Kitchens Press). And special thanks to Steve Bellin-Oka, who came aboard this year to serve as co-editor of this series.
