PLEASE RE-POST WIDELY:
as some of you know, achiote press’ winter chapbooks were printed about two weeks ago just in time for AWP. including our normal single-author chapbook and multi-author journal (Achiote Seeds), we also printed a special projects chapbook.
unfortunately, the multi-author chapbook SOLD OUT. it featured JAVIER HUERTA, GERARDO DIEGO TRANSLATED BY FRANCISCO ARAGON, VERONICA MONTES, AND MONICA DE LA TORRE.
so instead of selling our chaps in pairs, we decided to sell the other two chaps individually, for $6 each (includes shipping). both of these chapbooks are also almost sold out, so if you want your hands on them, please visit our website. if you’d like to write a check, please email me (csperez06 [at] gmail [dot] com) and i’ll send you my address.
