New Little Books From PANK

Our second Little Books reading period has closed. We read and enjoyed more than fifty excellent manuscripts. We have laughed, we have cried, we have agonized. We thank everyone who entered and trusted us with their writing. Matt and I had a very hard time (no, really) deciding on the manuscripts we would publish this go-around and just as with last time, we were interested in every manuscript we received. Y’all are a talented, imaginative, experimental bunch. We will announce a new Little Book reading period toward the end of the year.

That said, we are excited to announce we will be publishing three manuscripts:

Matt Salesses Our Island of Epidemics (Fall 2010)
Ethel Rohan Hard to Say (2011)
Nicolle Elizabeth Read This Shit Out Loud (2011)

We also had a shortlist of finalists who created books we loved:

Anne Leigh Parrish An Imaginary Life
Laura Ellen Scott Curio
Gabe Durham Camp Bylaws for the Hearty and True
Jensen Beach Everyday Every Day
Joseph Goosey Rory Gilmore Wants to Fight
Stephen Mills A History of Blood
Sue Williams They Say We Don’t Exist
James Tadd Adcox The Artificial Mountain
Ravi Mangla Hear Ye Knives
Kerri French Instruments of Summer
Andrew Borgstrom Mumbling for the Chorus
