Happy Friday, yes?

27 Jan

Interested poets, you still have 33 days to submit to the 2017 42 Miles Press Poetry Award contest.

In the meantime, Kimberly Lambright’s Ultra-Cabin (winner of the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award), is available to be previewed and purchased at SPD and Amazon. And… an awesome interview with the author can be found here.

And, because it’s Friday, and I’m thinking about Spring… here are two poems from Superstition Review by the 2017 42 Miles Press Poetry Award winner, Nate Pritts (DECOHERENCE, forthcoming).

A Virtual Interview w/ Kimberly Lambright

11 Jan

Bookwoman poetry open mic curator, Cindy Huyser, interviewed Kimberly Lambright about Ultra-Cabin and we are delighted to report you can now find that interview here!

And an excerpt (selfishly) mentioning 42 Miles Press here:

“I sent Ultra-Cabin to about 15 first-book contests over a period of about 2
years; the book was a finalist/semifinalist for a few contests, so that was
encouraging. 42 Miles is a small shop out of Indiana University—they
started in 2010 and put out one book a year, the poetry contest winner. I
found them via the Poets & Writers’ website. I was floored when I won and
feel really lucky to belong to the 42 Miles line—Betsy Andrews’ eerie and
beautiful The Bottom won the contest in 2013, for example, so I feel in
very good company.”

(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.

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.
