Book & Art Show Launch: David Dodd Lee

16 Feb

c4ktgzvvmaip2h_-jpg_largeFrom the man himself:

“A reminder not to miss my upcoming art exhibit, ‘Consent/Dissent,’ which will take place Thursday, at Langlab (doors open at 7 p.m.). This event is also doubling as a book launch for my latest book of Ashbery erasure poems, so I’ll be reading poems from “And Others, Vaguer Presences,” and other poems as well . . .. Come for the art, poetry, food, and the wonderful Langlab experience. Keep resisting (there is art and will be poetry pushing back against this administration as well). There will also be readings by Stephen CF, Alison Stine (who also collaborated with me on some of the collages in the show), Lucas Burkett, Nick Wort, Krista Cox, Alyse Chinnok, and a found poetry / noise performance by Sailbear 56k, plus some music by Joe Baughman. See you soon!”

Here is the link to the Facebook event page for more details.

Announcing the Winner and Runners-Up of the (2016) 42 Miles Press Poetry Award

2 Jul

FullSizeRender
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.
