If you’ll be in the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, February 23rd, join us for the Small Press Love Fest. This event brings together 4 small publishers from the East and West Coasts for an evening of fantastic author readings and Q&A with editors. You’ll get to hear a few of the local Writing That Risks authors as well as many others. Check out author bios and details on the event page. You can also see who’s going and RSVP on the Facebook event. This is our Valentine to you. We hope to see you there!
We received a ton of wonderful submissions to our first anthology, and it was an honor and a pleasure to read them. Out of that wealth of creativity, we selected 30 remarkable works of literature that explore the boundaries of content and style. They range from a ghost story set to blues chords to a love story set in a museum that may or may not be under attack by an angry mob; from a found poem that begins with a grocery receipt to a multi-part exploration of motherhood in verse. These pieces explore the gamut of human experience with humor and insight. Our authors hail from 6 countries and include multiple-award winners as well as new voices. Without further ado, I present to you the authors of Writing That Risks:
aJbishop, Catie Jarvis, Christina Olson, C. Lee Colvin, Dan Sklar,
David Ellis Dickerson, Edmund Zagorin, Erin Fitzgerald, Jenny Bitner, Joanne Clarkson,
John Newman, Jønathan Lyons, Jordan Reynolds, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, Libby Hart,
Mariev Finnegan, Michelle S. Lee, Molly English, Norman Lock, Olga Zilberbourg,
Patrick Cole, Rachel Yoder, Robert Neilson, Sharif Shakhshir,
Soren Gauger, Steve Castro, Wendy Williams, xTx, Zach Powers
This book is due out in April 2013. Stay tuned to hear more about how you can get your copy of the print or ebook.
P.S. You may have noticed that the headline above says Writing That Risks, vol. 1. That’s because we’re having so much fun with this anthology that we plan to do one every year.
P.P.S. Also, along with working on volume 1 of the anthology, we are now getting ready to select our first single author book. We’ll be posting an update on that call for submissions soon.
