Black Ocean (www.blackocean.org) brings together a spectrum of
influences—from silent films to punk rock—and manifests that
aesthetic in the books we print, the shows we produce, and the work
we promote. In conjunction with our book releases, we stage parties,
concerts, exhibitions and other celebrations around the country. Our
readers will include Zachary Schomburg and Paula Cisewski.
No Tell Books (www.notellbooks.org) is an independent press
specializing in poetry founded in 2006 by Reb Livingston, publisher
and editor of No Tell Motel (www.notellmotel.org). Their readers will
include: Bruce Covey, Jill Alexander Essbaum, Shafer Hall, Reb
Livingston, Karl Parker, Ravi Shankar, Laurel Snyder.
Octopus Books (www.octopusbooks.net) is a small press launched by the
editors of Octopus Magazine. It publishes two full-length books of
poems each year, in addition to solicited chapbooks, broadsides from
poems published in Octopus Magazine, and other projects. Octopus #8,
a set of 8 chapbooks, is currently available. Also, chapbooks from
Lily Brown and Jonah Winter, and a full-length book of poems from
Julie Doxsee are forthcoming. Reading for Octopus tonight are: Julie
Doxsee and Lily Brown.
Pilot Books (www.pilotpoetry.com) is the paper cousin of the online
poetry magazine Pilot. We strive to publish innovative work, and
believe that innovative work demands innovative design. All of our
limited-edition chapbooks and broadsides are designed and printed in
ways unique and luminous to the manuscript itself. We use fine papers
and construct all books by hand. Authors who will read: Lori Shine,
Friedrich Kerksieck and Anthony Robinson.
