Volume 4 includes books by Jules Boykoff, Brett Evans, Erica Kaufman, kathryn l. pringle and Frank Sherlock.

This Sunday- OVER HERE Book Release Party

OVER HERE Book Release Reading Party
Frank Sherlock w/ Sarah Dowling & Steve Dolph
Sunday February 8 at 7:30pm
L'Etage (above Beau Monde)
624 S. 6th Street (6th & Bainbridge)

This Sunday we'll be sharing poems and cocktails to launch OVER HERE into public space. Come out to celebrate the engaging work of two of my favorite writers, Sarah and Steve. If you make it, I'll read a poem just for you. I promise.

Poet/editor/friend Jenn McCreary will be our distinguished host.


Today (January 15) is the official release date of OVER HERE. I'm happy to have this book published as part of Factory School's Heretical Texts Series.

From the FS catalog:

OVER HERE is a collection of works written for farewell parties in the era of endings. These poems are culled from notebooks kept during imaginary road trips across the late empire, serving as toasts to new futures. Come inside for a strange celebration, and watch for sparks.

It's now available from SPD Books. Check it out here.
