This collection centers on the long illness and decline of a mother and the emotional challenges and fractures among her family. Visually and sonically inventive, these poems use the loneliness of rural Ohio roads, the disturbing environment of a nursing home, and the suffocation of working class life to set the eerie mood.

Thank you to all who sent us manuscripts. We have begun reading them and plan to have our 2020-2021 titles chosen by mid-June.

We are happy to announce our first full-length collection, glint by AKaiser. Pre-orders are being filled now and will be mailed this week. Thanks to all who pre-ordered the book.
This debut collection uses well-considered details and a strong sense of poetic line in its meditations. glint is influenced by visual art, poetry, and life abroad, all serving as still points for the poet. The quiet reflections of glint offer readers a place to pause and find insight into family life, travel, illness and trauma.
