We’re delighted to announce the lineup for the 2021 Summer Kitchen Series, consisting of six poets and five chapbooks. Thank you to everyone who sent in manuscripts for consideration this month: the quality was such that we decided to go ahead and make selections for all four available slots.
Please welcome to the Seven Kitchens Press family:
- Patrice Claeys & Gail Goepfert, for This Hard Business of Living
- Lisa Hammond, for Lily Watch
- Darius Atefat-Peckham, for How Many Love Poems
- Anthony DiPietro, for And Walk Through
- Ellen Birkett Morris, for Abide
Titles are scheduled for release in June and July. Only 24 copies of each chapbook will be available through Seven Kitchens Press. If you’ve purchased a 2021 subscription, you’ll receive the first numbered copies.
Once again, we will open the submission window for our Summer Kitchen Series from February 1 through February 14. From these manuscripts, we will select up to two titles for this year’s series, to be pubished (when else?) this coming summer. Full guidelines can be found here. We look forward to reading your work!
We’re stoked to release this year’s titles in the Summer Kitchen Series: Don’t Ask Why by Michelle Ortega, Rubbing Shoulders with the Greats by Devon Balwit, Death Salon by Robert Julius, and Nothing but time by Joanne Epp. Each title is limited to 49 copies: 25 go to the author and 24 are sold to fund this series. Order yours now!
We are stoked to announce the lineup for Volume 8 of our limited-edition Summer Kitchen Series. Each title appears in an edition of only 49 copies: each author gets 25, and the remaining 24 copies are sold to fund the series. These can go quickly–sometimes within 24 hours!–so stay tuned for the publication announcement (we hope to bring out all four titles in August).
- 8.01: Don’t Ask Why by Michelle Ortega of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
- 8.02: Rubbing Shoulders with the Greats by Devon Balwit of Portland, Oregon.
- 8.03: Death Salon by Robert Julius of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
