cool news: just found out that my chapbook Tide Hymns was a finalist for the Noemi Press 2008 chapbook contest, judged by Mary Jo BANG!
the first contest i ever entered, about 2 years ago, i was a semi-finalist. since the noemi contest was my second, and i finished as a finalist, it would stand to logic that i will win the next contest i enter. woohoo i cant wait!
anyhow, noemi press is one of my faves. i highly recommed the chaps by Bednarz, Stoddard, and Boully.
i filled the first flow of Achiote Press orders today at the post office. two paper bags full. they hate me there. order yours before it’s too late 😉
