News from the Chapbook World

Congrats to Shann Palmer, whose manuscript "Change" won the Poetic Asides Chapbook Challenge from Writer's Digest.

And to Christina Pacosz, whose chapbook "Notes from the Red Zone" was selected by Seven Kitchens Press for its first ReBound Series, which reprints in select editions "out-of-print" chapbooks nominated by writers.

Of course, you'd have to be living under one comfy rock if you didn't know that Graywolf Press was publishing Elizabeth Alexander's Inaugural Ode as a chapbook on Feb. 6, 2009.

And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that in Summer 2009 the fabulous Dancing Girl Press will be reading submissions from women poets for its annual chapbook series. So get those chapbooks ready!

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am a huge fan of chapbooks and am always glad to promote presses that do a kick-ass job of publishing and promoting the little darlings.
