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.
Please join us in congratulating our authors on the forthcoming publication of their first full-length collections:
Catherine Staples’ collection, The Rattling Window, will be published by Ashland Poetry Press. Catherine is the author of Never a Note Forfeit, co-winner of the 2010 Keystone Chapbook Prize. In other news, Catherine’s poem “Red Rover” won the Guy Owen Prize from the Southern Poetry Review.
Matthew Hittinger’s collection, Skin Shift, will be published in June 2012 by Sibling Rivalry Press. Matthew is the author of Platos de Sal, #2 in our Editor’s Series.
We also have word that Steven Riel’s first full-length collection has found a publisher–more word on that as soon as we hear. Steven is the author of Postcard from P-town, #2 in our Robin Becker Chapbook Series.
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.
We’re happy to announce the imminent release of two new chapbooks: Letter to Frank O’Haraby Steve Turtell, winner of the 2010 ReBound Prize, which drops on February 14, and Between Careen and Cautionby Heather Burns, #11 in our Editor’s Series, which will publish on February 28.
Pre-orders are being accepted now for Steve’s chapbook, and Heather’s will be available for pre-order very soon. Please join us in welcoming our two newest authors!
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.
