NightBallet Press is taking pre-orders for an especially tasty treat: Lipsmack! A Sampler Platter of Poets from NightBallet Press, Year One 2012! This delicious 36 page collection of poems celebrates NightBallet Press' first anniversary. From September 2011 to September 2012, NightBallet Press published chapbooks and full-length poetry books for 18 different poets, and they are represented in this anthology by (98%) all new poems!
That's absolutely all new and exciting poems by Lyn Lifshin, John Dorsey, George Wallace, Jack McGuane, Chansonette Buck, Lady K (Kathy) Smith, Terry Provost, T. M. Göttl, Heather Ann Schmidt/Sukha-Prajna, Jim Lang, Steve Brightman, Elise Geither, Kara Johnston, Bonné de Blas, Alex Gildzen, and Russell Salamon!
The only two poems that have been reprinted from the original chapbooks are by the excellent and dynamic performance poets Zach Ashley and Ralph La Charity, and are immediately and perfectly representative of their body of work.
Lipsmack! is designed to expose and make readily available the originality and variety of poetry that NightBallet Press presents through its unique and diverse writers. The yummy vanilla-colored pages are packaged in a soft white cardstock cover with a mouthwatering candy-apple cardstock insert. But the real treats are the lipsmacking poems contained within!
