We love Kate Schapira

Did you know that Kate Schapira is talking with us about the changing world?

Did you know that Kate Schapira is thinking about sentences? In the Ottawa Poetry Newsletter, she writes:

At home, I try to make some words do what I want. Then I try to let the words do what they want. Both feel strange, maybe because only one of us can “want” anything. But words do demonstrably have both their own meanings—resonances, echoes, histories, possibilities and waveforms proper to each—and the meanings they generate in their interactions with each other, the buzzing and yearning set up as their forms overlap, pushing and pulling on one another.

Where does a sentence lead?

A new chapbook to the line-up: What Kind of Howly Divine by Jessica Comola

I promised we’d add a chapbook to our 2014 line-up if our Kickstarter reached $2000, and it did, and we are! We are so excited we get to publish WHAT KIND OF HOWLY DIVINE, a first chapbook from Jessica Comola. Jessica Comola’s poems have previously appeared in Anti-, Everyday Genius, Painted Bride Quarterly, Eccolinguistics, and BOAAT. Today some poems of hers appeared in an amazing issue of Smoking Glue Gun, which also includes work by Horse Less authors and friends Lauren Gordon, Gina Abelkop, Jenn Marie Nunes, and more. As I was typing this update, a poem of hers appeared at Moss Trill. Who knows where she will have published by the time this is posted! 

We will release WHAT KIND OF HOWLY DIVINE this month! If you contribute $15 or more to our Kickstarter, you’ll receive a copy automatically! I am also adding a new $10 reward to our Kickstarter, so you can pre-order Jessica Comola’s WHAT KIND OF HOWLY DIVINE individually. We only have three days left of our campaign, so place your orders now!
