(Slight) Delay Notice

5 Sep

Whelp, this is not the type of news we get particularly excited about posting, and, in fact, it’s a little embarrassing. Running a poetry press is filled with, uh, let’s call them first occasions. (Not all of them are ones worth celebrating.)

The release of Kimberly Lambright’s Ultra-Cabin has been delayed. Like all winners of the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award, it’s “official release date” is September, 1st, but due to circumstances outside of our control, it will not be available to purchase or preview for another week or so.

Rest assured, the moment the book is in our hands we will work overtime to get it into your hands. Kimberly’s stunning first book will be available to purchase on SPD, Amazon, and from us or the author directly.

Our deepest apologies to Kimberly and to you, 42M readers.

For more information on the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award please visit our contest and submissions page. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or would like to request a review copy of Ultra-Cabin please e-mail 42 Miles directly at 42milespress@gmail.com.

2 Jul

Well, we are a day behind making this announcement, but what can we say, the competition this year was fierce. Thank you to everyone that submitted to our competition this year, without you, this press, specifically, this competition would not be possible.

Our decision was anything but easy, but we are pleased to announce that Nate Pritts has won the (2016) 42 Miles Press Poetry Award for his manuscript, Revenant Tracer. The award includes a $1,000 prize in addition to the publication of his book by 42 Miles Press in September 2017. Nate will give a reading at Indiana University South Bend upon publication. Congratulations, sir. Welcome to the 42 Miles Press family!

A little about our newest author:
Nate Pritts is the Director and Founding Editor of H_NGM_N (2001), an independent publishing house that started as a mimeograph ‘zine and which has grown to encompass an annual online journal, an occasional digital chapbook series, a continuing series of single-author books and sporadic limited edition/low-fi projects.

He is also the author of seven books of poetry, most recently Right Now More Than Ever (2013) and the forthcoming Post Human. Publishers Weekly described his fifth book, Sweet Nothing (2011), as “both baroque and irreverent, banal and romantic, his poems […] arrive at a place of vulnerability and sincerity.” POETRY Magazine called his The Wonderfull Yeare (2009), “rich, vivid, intimate, & somewhat troubled” while The Rumpus called Big Bright Sun (2010) “a textual record of mistakes made and insights gleaned…[in] a voice that knows its part in self-destruction.”

Pritts is an Associate Professor at Ashford University where he serves as Curriculum Lead and Administrative head of the Film program.
