We are thrilled to finally have a publication date for our Fall books! We’ll be releasing all our books on October 3!
We kick off our next round of books with two recent lectures of one of America’s premier gay poets and master of the prose poem, Aaron Shurin. Flowers and Sky: Two Talks focusses on the foundation of his art and his impulse to poetry. This book will include a few unpublished poems as well as an audio download of Aaron reading the work.
We are pleased to present a new collaboration between Spokane poet, Maya Jewell Zeller, and Seattle artist, Carrie DeBacker. Odds are pretty good that Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts will be the brightest looking full-color poetry book you’ll see this year, but don’t be fooled— it’s a dark work on the nature of being a woman in these troubling times. We are also pleased to support women filmmakers with our ERB Emerging Visions Award and look forward to Rebecca Starkey‘s interpretation of this book.
Finally, we are pleased to follow The After with a new full-length by one of Seattle’s most intriguing writers, Melinda Mueller. Mary’s Dust contains thirty-two poems on thirty-two different Marys and the wide-arch of history while meditating how women create their own identities against a society that defines their options. Our one word to describe it? STAGGERING. This book will ship with an audio download featuring a new composition by Lori Goldston based on poems as well as Melinda reading a selection from the book.
