Whose books are coming out in 2017? Well let me tell you…

Kelly E. Sullivan’s first pamphlet Fell Year will be published this week – she’s got a reading at the University of Connecticut in April and it has to be available for the students on that course to buy. David Sergeant’s second collection, The Pronoun Utopia, will be following, as will Sheila Hamilton’s The Glass People. Art Allen’s first pamphlet Here Birds Are, and Beata Duncan’s first full collection Berlin Blues are coming soon.

Meanwhile, Ivonne Piper’s first collection Life Room got a very nice mention(as did the press in general) in Tears in the Fence this month: “…a substantial collection from a poet born in 1930. Piper’s expansive and divergent poetry is well worth celebrating with a mature first collection. Editor, Jennifer Grigg, has a good eye for emerging talent too with attractively designed and produced pamphlets from Sayuri Ayers, Tracey Rhys and Claire Booker.” Thank you very much, David Caddy! What would we do without poetry magazines willing to cast their nets wide?
