If you’re in Atlanta, catch Chris Vitiello at Emory University; in Houston, watch for Karen Rigby at Brazos Bookstore.



Publishers Weekly on Counterpart

“Language, in Robinson’s hands, is unstable, warped, and deceptive. Her poems roll over and over in quickly changing permutations: ‘the frail opening from/ ration to rational.'” Now available!



Chinoiserie reviewed in Prairie Schooner

Prairie Schooner reviews Karen Rigby’s Chinoiserie: “Our travels through the collection feel like a eerie but somehow familiar blend of Victoriana and the American desert of Georgia O’Keeffe: hints of both delicately and subtly entwine themselves throughout the collection. . . . No word or white space is out of place in any one of her perfectly polished poems.”

The Arcadia Project ships from the printer!

We’ve been waiting to hear that The Arcadia Project is on its way, and now it is! Kickstarter backers, you’ll be getting your copies and premiums shortly. Teachers, it will be in stock at SPD beginning next week! Visit the anthology’s site at for teaching ideas.
