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).
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.”
“To Vie” from Kimberly Lambright’s Ultra-Cabin (winner of the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award).
Ultra-Cabin is currently available and able to be previewed and purchased at SPD and Amazon. Or you can purchase a copy from the author herself. She will be reading on 1.12.17 at BookWoman in Austin, TX and again on 1.13.17 at Berl’s Poetry Shop in Brooklyn, NY.
Our fearless leader, David Dodd Lee, has a new book of Ashbery erasure poems out now!
And Others, Vaguer Presences published by BlazeVOX can be previewed and purchased here.

In the meantime, here is a print of a donut wearing a jetpack designed by a bass player and a collage of a crime scene constructed by a poet.
