June news & previews

We’re pretty stoked that the Seven Kitchens Giving Month June fundraising drive has generated such a great response–we’re three-quarters to our ISBN Fund Goal and it’s not even June yet! Thanks so much for your support.

June also means that we’ll be reading manuscripts for the Keystone Chapbook Series, for poets with a Pennsylvania connection. This is the series that launched Seven Kitchens Press back in 2007 with Harry Humes’ Underground Singing. The newest title, Erin Murphy’s Remorse Code, is out now, and two more titles are scheduled to drop this summer: Deborah Burnham’s Among the Other Dead and William Varner’s Leaving Erebus. 

Finally, look for an announcement soon about our very new, and very queer, anthology series, co-edited by Terry Kirts. This project has been years in the planning, and we’re so excited to launch it this summer!

SPF wrapup

Thanks again to all the good folks at this year’s Small Press Festival in Pittsburgh, who made our first public foray into the Small Press Wonder Tent so effortless and enjoyable. I bopped down to Carlisle to pick up Kari Larsen and we zipped over to Pittsburgh via the the tollway through the first blush of early-autumn foliage. It was great to browse and chat with the other vendors/writers/artists and to get such a positive response to our catalog. The overwhelming “I-must-pick-this-up-and-check-it-out” title was Terry Kirts’ To the Refrigerator Gods. We set up next to David McNamara’s fabulous sunnyoutside table and enjoyed two days of friendly, engaging, and helpful bookchat (as well as a bit of Red Sox/DamnYankees banter). I met Noel Sloboda, whose poems I first encountered back when I was on staff at West Branch; had a lovely meeting & chat with Karen Weyant  & her partner; finally met the awesome RJ Gibson; and got to hang out & have breakfast with the delightful Jeff Oaks. So many beautiful books–I wanted one of each! Already looking forward to doing this again next year.
