AUGUST 2023

"Shift Notes" by Sophie Christenberry

"Sophie Christenberry is, to be frank, unthinkably good. In this collection she gives us poems that teach us that what we make with our hands must exist within us first. Here are poems that somehow seem to exist outside of linear time and beyond vocation where service is a mask that reveals. These are poems that ooze like summer."

— Angel Nafis, author of BlackGirl Mansion

JULY 2023

"random access memory" by nat raum

RAM COVER final.png

"The experience of reading nat raum’s random access memory is a little like walking into a nightclub well past sensible o’clock with the strobe flickering, shadows looming in corners—one of whom looks like your ex-boyfriend and another that may well be that girl you once had a thing with—not knowing whether it’s nostalgia or desire that’s making you nauseous."

— JP Seabright, editor at Full House Literary

"An Oral History of One Day in Guyana" by Shannon Frost Greenstein

guyana cover final.png

"A fascinating and troubling story, chronicling the long-term effects of a woman's indoctrination into The People's Temple and the devastating fate she meets at the Jonestown Massacre. Deftly structured, imaginative, and engrossing, Shannon Frost Greenstein has done it again."

— Jonathan Koven, author of Below Torrential Hill

"So, Who's Courage?" by tommy wyatt blake

courage cover FINAL.png

"In So, Who's Courage?, tommy wyatt blake deftly interweaves playful forms and heart-rending prose to invoke the complicated entanglement of love, fear, and family so many of us made to grow up too early know all too well."

— Katharine Blair, founding editor, kith books

JUNE 2023

"the algorithm knows i never stopped loving you" by Katy Haas

TAK COVER  W HEARTS.png

"Haas’s writing perfectly captures the inherent comedy of love and heartbreak in the digital age—the poems feel immediate and tactile. These poems make a breakup sound like the most romantic thing that can happen to you... This collection will have you texting quotes from every poem to the person you’re sleeping with."

— Frances Klein, author of New and Permanent

"Poems [for, about, because] My Friends" by Hattie Hayes

FABMF COVER FINAL.png

"Hattie Hayes's beautiful debut collection is an absolutely stunning, vivid and emotional journey full of vibrant poems on the myriad ways friendship creates its own map on life's terrain."

— Ellyn Maybe, poet/musician/lyricist

"How the Frogs Get Married" by Kimberly Wolf

HTFGM COVER.PNG

"Wolf pulls at the root of intense desire while struggling with the pain of that wanting, using straightforward and hypnotic prose to wrestle with one of the most long-standing questions there is: what does it mean to be alive?"

— Kirsten Reneau, author of What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Weirder

MAY 2023

"What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Weirder" by Kirsten Reneau

wdkymyw cover FINAL.png

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the greatest book of them all? Answer: Kirsten Reneau’s What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Weirder, and it’s not even close. No other book will make you laugh and cry and go: 'Oh damn! Why do you gotta call me out like that?!' in 0-60 seconds. WDKYMYW is a way of life and you should adopt it immediately."

 

— Shawn Berman, author of Mr. Funnyman and Editor of The Daily Drunk 

"Marian Prayers" by Greer McAllister

mp cover 5.png

"At once mystical and profound, Greer McAllister tackles the spirit of nature and the nature of humanity with Marian Prayers. Set in a scene which shifts in tone between deep rust brown and glowing gold, McAllister luxuriates in a landscape built for the admiration of women."

— nat raum, author of specter dust

"Barback" by Elias Baez

barback cover final.png

I shouldn’t have mentioned
the belt and hydrangeas
before, that was weird of me;

I promise I’m professional,
sweet yet tart like cherry pie,
and like really good with computers.

— from "I wanna tutor Katy Perry"

APRIL 2023

"my room (and other wombs)" by C. Heyne

mraow cover 5.png

"my room (and other wombs) postures intimacy as the webbing between all things, good and bad. It emphasizes the emotional thresholds where we are most vulnerable—when we see ourselves in a rush of birds, waiting grass, and our favorite songs. But despite the ache and emptiness Heyne writes of, the poems also leave space for their counterparts—and we see how the world is a constellation of interconnectedness, a murmuration of love."

— Samantha Fain, author of Coughing Up Planets and sad horse music 

"Grief Birds" by Sam Moe

grief birds cover 4.png

“Sam Moe’s words will crawl into your chest and coax out emotions long dormant, long forgotten, and long unrecognized. Grief Birds is a feast of lush, seasoned descriptions and visceral, of-the-body evocations that will somehow leave you both satiated and craving seconds."

— (re)becca meier, author of small wings

MARCH 2023

"One Shtick Pony" by Ari Lisner

ONE SHTICK PONY COVER.jpg

“Take a bit of city bric-a-brac, gay it up, mix equal parts sly posturing and embarrassing earnesty, and voila—ONE SHTICK PONY. Reading Lisner’s work, I oscillate between wicked laughter and the kind of tears only a transsexual feeling their way through language/the world knows. You’ll swoon while Ari takes notes!”

FEBRUARY 2023

"Let Me Take You Out of This Town" by Andrea Lawler

LMTYOOTT COVER 5.png

"I absolutely love Let Me Take You Out of This Town by Andrea Lawler. Every piece is honest and captivating. Andrea's poems about love, and difficult relationships, never feel heavy handed or melodramatic thanks to the writer's incredible sense of humor. I laughed and cried as I finished it one seating."

— M.R. Mandell, poet

"Still Alive, I'm Afraid" by Elena Ender

SAIA COVER 2.png

"Elena Ender’s Still Alive, I’m Afraid is reaching out a hand, desperately asking to be seen and known. She asks the reader to consider what is scarier: to never be known at all, or to be known all too well? Ender writes of the quiet and endless fears that underscore everyday life, capturing what it means to be truly alive."

— Kirsten Reneau, author of What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Weirder

"Angela Irvine Is the Bus Stop" by Karen Walker

angela cover 5.png

A twenty-four-page fiction collection by Karen Walker.

Nine stories set in the made-up town of Irvineville, from which Angela Irvine is running.

"Rush" by D. Parker

rush cover 3.png

"The reader is a voyeur in D. Parker’s pamphlet and we are indulged in each scenario, the imagery of erotic meetings and trips and coffee shops makes me want to read more and more—I want to read the words the speaker’s lover writes in their notebook in ‘coffee,' I want to see the haircut in ‘what will I grab onto?’ and I want to devour the list of titles, as indulgent as the sex beautifully celebrated in each of the poems."

 

— Wendy Allen, author of Plastic Tubed Little Bird

JANUARY 2023

"Wrong Things" by Jason Melvin

WT COVER FINAL png.png

"Melvin is the best case scenario for those who don’t 'get poetry' because he barrels into every poem with the bluntness and honesty that anyone can connect with. It’s popular to shine a literary light onto pop culture, celebrity, or other social circles and use a criticism of them as fuel for writing. It’s harder to shine that light on one’s self and bare... your grimier internal thoughts onto the page."

— Brandon Noel

"Cries, the Midnight Sky" by Daniel J. Flosi

CTMS COVER FINAL.jpg

Cries, the Midnight Sky traverses a lush and restless landscape inhabited by an old dog, rust on a silo, and the ghost of a grandfather who waits impatiently for the tomatoes to ripen. Here is a vivid, down-home ecopoetic where regret and hope grow as forsythia. Daniel J Flosi expertly explores the push and pull of unchecked life and its eventual decay."

— Terri Linn Davis

NOVEMBER 2022

"The Great Wraith Finale" by Ami J. Sanghvi

gwf cover 1.png

"Form and performance coalesce in Ami J. Sanghvi’s latest masterpiece, The Great Wraith Finale, satisfying my every spectral urge as an avid fan of hybrid work. Sangvhi’s ever-present formal experiments push the boundaries of language as we know it, bringing words into the realm of art with a masterful use of visual poetry and negative space. My instinct is to praise this book as a work of art, which it is."

— nat raum, author of specter dust

"Two Vapourwave Classics" by Nicks Walker

TVWC COVER FINAL.png

""Reading TWO VAPOURWAVE CLASSICS by Nicks Walker is the same experience as waking up from general anesthesia—the light is fuzzy and pink, and time is bending itself in a circle. The dreamy and hazy quality of this pamphlet is also reminiscent of AI writing; there's something so uncanny, yet entirely too human, here, begging you to look all the way in."

— Tommy Blake, author of So, Who's Courage?

"Handcuffing the Venus de Milo" by Jesse Hilson

VDM FINAL COVER.png

"Without pose, Jesse Hilson has created a beautiful survey of our fallen world, accelerated by moments of hilarity and despair, and an a priori rejection of the crowd mind. Handcuffing the Venus de Milo is a concourse of naturalism shot through with mystical inquiry. Hilson ranks with Raymond Carver in his achievement of telling love like it is.”

 

— Adam Johnson, author of Cialis, Verdi, Gin, Jag

OCTOBER 2022

"An Angel Is a Kind of Ghost" by Amy Jannotti

angel ghost FINAL COVER.png

"With an impressive range of forms and styles, and artful dexterity in language, Amy Jannotti draws back the curtain on isolation and suffering in poems that ask, above all: 'see me and witness I am here.' Yet despite its familiarity with sorrow, its deeply honest confrontation with loneliness and lost connection, An Angel is a Kind of Ghost abounds with humanity."

— Lilia Marie Ellis, author of Love and Endless Love

"DUH" by Juliet Gelfman-Randazzo

duh cover FINAL.png

"Juliet Gelfman-Randazzo is the new funniest writer I know. In DUH, a sense of humor and a sense of form are one thing. Each joke becomes a set of conceptual parameters: games imply rules, and vice versa. Through their conceptual transparency these poems reveal a lyricism and an unpredictability breathing a wilder air beyond."

— Sophia Dahlin

"Girl / Mirror / Wolf" by Katy Naylor

GMW.png

"Katy Naylor's Girl / Mirror / Wolf is a collection about the girl who went into the woods and the woman who returned bloody and raw. Naylor's sharp writing can cut through even the toughest wolf skin, revealing what can be dissected from fairy tales today."


— Alex Carrigan, author of May All Our Pain Be Champagne

SEPTEMBER 2022

"Fucko" by Lucas Restivo

FUCKO FINAL COVER.png

"A plunge into the neurotic brain if the neurotic brain had its birthday party at an Italian-American Chuck E. Cheese. It’s fun, it’s masculine, it’s jabbing, and complex boy thoughts at their best."

— Ari Lisner, author of One Shtick Pony

"A Little Smaller Than the Final Quark" by Carson Pytell

FINAL QUARK FINAL COVER.png

“Every poem in A Little Smaller than the Final Quark is a multifaceted gem set in lovely filigree, and Carson Pytell is one of our finest gemsetters.”

 

— James Nulick, author of Lazy Eyes

AUGUST 2022

"Two Out of Three Falls" by Clem Flowers

TTF COVER 2.png

"The ebb and flow of friendships is reflected in their peers’ acceptance of America’s finest native art form, as Flowers first makes friends, then feels ostracized, and then bonds again by watching professional wrestling. Clem Flowers’s poetry makes for a thrilling main event."

— Andrew Daugherty, novelist

"Lost Things" by Lauren Theresa

LOST THINGS FINAL COVER.png

"In a microburst micro-memoir, segmented like a snake’s spine, sliding backward through time, Lauren Theresa voices and thereby repossesses the lost things of her own life, from English muffin pizzas to addiction, from Flintstone vitamins to lost loves. Like a blowtorch formed from hairspray and a lighter, she burns through the bullshit and gets to the heart of who she is, reclaiming her own essential radiance."

 

— Diane Seuss, author of frank: sonnets

JULY 2022

"specter dust" by nat raum

SPECTER DUST FINAL COVER.png

"specter dust is a viciously honest collection of raw emotion. nostalgia nips and gnaws at raum's heartstrings in this beautifully haunting narrative. come bleed into the pages as each piece strikes you in your core."

 

— V.L. Parz, author of HOLLOW BODIES and FALSE IDOLS

"RATTUS RATTUS" by Helena Pantsis

RATTUSRATTUS.jpg

A twelve-page poetry pamphlet by Helena Pantsis, an artist from Naarm.

What it looks like.

"Roadside Frutería" by J. Villanueva

RF COVER 6X9 FINAL.png

"A motorcycle. A frutería off the highway, offering up memories. J. Villanueva’s poems wind and twist through the past, taking us back to his childhood. Roadside Frutería is an intimate look at a family’s history and culture, and as J. revisits these moments in time, we are all along for the ride."

— Kimberly Wolf, author of How the Frogs Get Married

"This Side of the Dirt" by Adrian Sanders

TSOTD FINAL COVER 6by9.png

"Holy shit. This gorgeous, haunting collection has left an indelible mark within me that keeps me returning to it again and again. Sanders perfectly paints a world both dynamic and still, where time slows to intricate moments that are  uniquely hers, but also so very familiar. Pulsing and vivid every step of the way, This Side of the Dirt will find its home deep within you, too."

— Lauren Theresa, author of Lost Things

MAY 2022

"Mutant Desert Adventure" by Santiago

MDA cover.png

A sixty-page comic by Santiago, author of Bullshit's Weather Reports. 

Some people get stuck in the desert. Some stuff happens.

APRIL 2022

"The Event Horizon" by Halle Preneta

TEH FINAL COVER.png

"A cruel beauty of a trick is to describe a pit in the heart of a black hole before you drag someone into one—Halle Preneta does so in The Event Horizon, and I'm so thankful for it. Reading this is a hazy, fuzzy playback of memory, all with a narration that keeps you enraptured with the harsh heat of unvarnished honesty..."

— Clem Flowers, author of Two Out of Three Falls

FEBRUARY 2022

"Douchebag Sonnets" by Jeremy Freedman

douchebag.png

"All the sonnets here are honest, provocative, entertaining, and wise—filled with this poet's gleeful awareness that he is violating poetic decorum at every turn, as he leads us toward painful enlightenment. This collection is the audacious work of a genuine giant douchebag sage."

 

— George Guida, author of Zen of Pop
