Chapbook News

Cooper Dillon, a new independent poetry press founded by Colleen Ryor and Adam Deutsch, has announced its first 2 chapbooks, which are due out in Fall 2009:

The Devastation, by Jill Alexander Essbaum

They Speak of Fruit, by Gary L. McDowell

Cooper Dillon is currently reading for full-length poetry manuscripts. Guidelines can be found on the press web site.


In other chapbook news, I should be receiving my review copy of Lisa Sewell's chapbook, Long Corridor, published by Seven Kitchens. I look forward to reviewing this for an upcoming issue of berniE-zine.

Additionally, Seven Kitchens has posted a "wish list" of items they could certainly use from generous donors. Many of the items are things that people might have in excess cluttering their own offices (used Tyvek envelopes, gently used manila folders or hanging folders) so if you're doing a Summer clean-up on your office, don't throw those old folders away... donate them to a worthy small press!
