Spring/Summer Updates

Too many things are in the works to post them all individually, so here is an update for all YFP happenings...

From now until Sunday, April 7th if you buy one broadside we will send you a second broadside FOR FREE! If you have a preference for your free broadside let us know in the comment section of your order, otherwise we'll send you a random broadside with your order. That's 2 broadsides for $3. Can't beat that...

Vision/Verse 5
We are beginning the process of making the broadsides for this year's Vision/Verse show. 20 new broadside titles from some stellar poets. We are also working on a trade paperback anthology of the first five years of Vision/Verse poems. We will be making more announcements about this as it comes together.

Elizabeth Burk's  Learning to Love Louisiana is flying off the shelf. We have sold out of the second printing, and are in the process of making a Third Printing of 50 copies. We will also be printing a Reading Edition of 10 copies for her reading in Lafayette on June 15th. There will also be a Special Edition (YFP-SE) version of the book that will not be for sale (but we will post pics!). There is also talk of doing an alternate art final printing later down the road. This book has gotten nothing but glowing responses so pick up a copy if you haven't already.

We are working on a new release by poet Bonny McDonald. Hope to have more info on this soon, but I can say that it may be our first hardcover release, which kinda explains why it is taking so long to get this release together. We are on the learning curve here... I can promise that the poetry is ridiculously good.

Stephanie Marker's mini-chapbook And Her Eyes Were Closed the Whole Time has now SOLD OUT. Check out Stephanie's new project here http://lazymousepress.blogspot.com/

Erica McCreedy's Red Winters chapbook has now SOLD OUT. We are thinking about a second edition printing sometime in the future.

There's much more going on but that's the main stuff. Keep in touch, y'all.
