We are leaping into spring with new chapbooks and columns. We are excited to continue learning about being writers, readers and lovers of literature through our new and featured authors this month and for the rest of the year.
The second in Folded Word’s 2016 Chapbook Series, Matthew James Babcock’s debut poetry collection Points of Reference, came out in late March. It can also be ordered individually or in bulk here. Check out Port Yonder Press’s interview with Babcock about his nonfiction essays.
Samantha Priestly, author of Dreamers and the forthcoming Orange Balloon, has a new flash fiction piece up on the Folded blog. Filling Holes brings in both spring and gardening for a sweet seasonal piece.
Two more sections of the #WriteLife column are up on the Folded blog. Author Dan Szczesny (Mosquito Rain, available for preorder) intends the series for the writer who wants to “go pro.” His new column pieces explore the comic relief of book signings and how to discover, as authors, that we are not alone.
Author and graphic designer Dorothee Lang just launched a new column, Folded Quotes. She combines quotes from Folded authors with her own graphic design for striking images. Her first one is available on the Folded blog.
Folded Word’s Twitter poetry zine unFold officially launched earlier this year. Editor Rose Auslander, with the help of new Assistant Editor Kristine Slentz, has the zine up and running. We are posting new work four times a month this year. We are seeking submissions for poems of ten lines or fewer. To submit, access our form here. Check out our new submissions and formatting, including this haiku by David Oestrich:
