The first dozen manuscripts have come in for the Robin Becker Chapbook Series, and it’s turning out to be a fun and varied read so far. Remember, there’s no reading fee and we’ll be considering manuscripts until May 15, so polish up your work and send it in! Details are here.
Please join us in congratulating RJ Gibson, whose chapbook, Scavenge, is now in its third printing! Co-winner of the 2009 Robin Becker Prize, this title is one of our best sellers and absolutely deserves its ever-widening readership. We can’t wait till RJ has a full-length book, but till then, we wholeheartedly recommend this collection: 24 pages of smart, sharply observant poems whose titles alone–from “Coming from a Farm” and “Earthly Delights” to “Erotics” to “Ontology: Britney Spears”–let you know you’re in for an original treat. Congrats, RJ!
