a bunch of good things

Have you had a chance to visit the website for Accents Publishing? If not, please do. Accents is a new, independent press with some really interesting titles from Georgi Borissov, Barry George, Jim Lally, Jude Lally, and Brian Russell. The coolest part about Accents? They sell their books for $5. Yup. Five bucks. Accents Publishing will be hosting an author signing during the AWP conference in Denver this April, so I encourage you to stop by, meet some authors, and congratulate senior editor Katerina Stoykova-Klemer. Also visit her personal author website here.

There are still a few days to enter the 2010 Snowbound Chapbook Award at Tupelo Press. This is an open competition for a poetry manuscript with a $1,000 prize and 50 copies of the winning book. For more details, go here.

There are also just a few days left to enter the Sawtooth Poetry Prize. The winning volume receives $1,500 and will be published in January 2011 by Ahsahta Press. For submission guidelines, go here.

Earlier this week, I received the lovely news that one of my current chapbook manuscripts was a semi-finalist for the 2009 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Award. Super! I also want to offer congratulations to Mark Neely for his manuscript Four of a Kind. Concrete Wolf will publish his winning chapbook this fall 2010.

Spread the news about these submission opportunities and excellent new titles.

Have a great weekend and see you Monday!
