Love Me, Love My Belly no. 2
The press is reading chapbook manuscripts through April 1, 2014. We’re looking for 12-28 page works with a cohesive thread, tight focus, and are particularly interested in works with a strong sense of place or identity.
Manuscript announcements & excerpts for chaps accepted in the 2014 season will pop up on the blog in the coming weeks. Pre-orders are available in our shop via Etsy. Those electing to pre-order will be the first (after the writers & poets) to receive special edition copies.
Love Me, Love My Belly, a body image zine printed by PP, has closed for submission. Submission responses have gone out for everything, and we’re awaiting final confirmations before going ahead with layout and proofing. We anticipate that the zine will surface sometime between late April & early May.
