Pre-order Z"L: A Benefit Chapbook for CJ Martin and Julia Drescher
Our friends in Texas have been busy folding and binding Z"L, a benefit chapbook for poets CJ Martin and Julia Drescher, and I'm happy to say the book is finally ready for pre-order. Edited and executed by Ash Smith with letterpress cover and flyleaf by me, this chapbook is only $5 and the proceeds go to helping Chris's mother start over after losing everything (literally EVERYTHING) in the aftermath of a tornado. Rather than buy your $5 coffee tomorrow, pay pal over a fiver, receive an awesome book featuring tons of interesting contributors, and help Betsy Martin land on her feet (I was going to say "start over" but that's obviously not possible). Go here and make it happen.
And here's a list of contributors (so you know what you're getting!): Kate Greenstreet, Sueyuen Juliette Lee, Shin Yu Pai, David Hadbawnik, Taylor Brady, Erica Lewis, Carter Smith, JB Beck, Karen McBurney, Dan Thomas Glass, Brenda Iijima, Divya Victor, Hugo Garcia Manriquez, Jessica Smith, Chad Heltzel, Sarah Mangold, Kevin Varrone, Marcella Durand, Pattie McCarthy, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Steve Wilson, Laura Goldstein & Nikki Wallschlaeger, Thom Donavan, Sarah Campbell, Carolina Ebeid, Paul Klinger, Dan Coffey, Pablo Miguel Martinez, Kathleen Peirce, Jeffery Pethybridge, Michalle Gould, David Abel, Dawn Pendergast, Bonnie Emerick, Rob Halpern, Michael Cross (though I think my piece got cut!), Alison Cimino, Michelle Detorie, Paula J. Smith, Jeff Sirkin, Amanda Ackerman, Rosetta Ballew-Jennings, Deborah Poe, Rosa Alcala, Roberto Ontiveros, Crane Giamo, Drew Kunz,Stephen Novotny, Jeremy Ballard, Norma Cole, Susan Briante, Julia Bloch...
