The Anthology is being postponed indefinitely. Pre-orders will be refunded within 90 days. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

I will not be responding to emails regarding this decision unless they are from presses who want to take up the project wholesale, in which case I may be contacted for the files.

Tomorrow night's New York reading will go on as planned. I hope that associations formed during the Anthology's production will continue to be fruitful. Group readings by younger poets can be legitimate and interesting even without a book to promote, I think.

Anthology Readings!

If you live near one of these places and want to participate in an Anthology-related reading, please email the following people:

Ottowa (May): Max Middle
DC (April): Adam Chiles
Atlanta: Bruce Covey
Iowa: Dan Coffey
Chicago: Kathleen Rooney/Barrett Gordon
Boston (April): Jessica Bozek/Kerri French/Chris Tonelli
Philadelphia: Ashraf Osman
Calgary: Natalie Zina Walschots
St. Louis (5 Feb 09 @ Observable): Aaron Belz

We're still working on Buffalo and California readings to take place anytime this year, and there's one in the works just outside of Asheville, NC. If you're in the position to organize something in one of these locations or another one (like Portland, Vancouver, Toronto), please let me know (but otherwise, please go through these people; I'm not organizing these readings). I'd like to have readings going all year long. Thanks to everyone who's making this happen!

NYC Reading

The Anthology won't be ready in time for the supposed release at the NYC reading, but hopefully proofs will be ready for you to approve by then. The turnaround time from proof to print is entirely dependent on how long it takes 300+ people to approve proofs, so hopefully the proofs will be nearly immaculate by the time you get them and you can just say "ok! ready to go." The reading will go on as scheduled and will still involve awesome Anthology authors, just don't expect the finished book to be there.

Missing email addys

We're missing email addresses for a few of you. If you haven't received an email from the Editors about sending your bio, please shoot a quick email to so that we have you on our mailing list. The list will be used to gather bios, approve proofs, and announce anthology readings in your area-- nothing more (I hate spam too). Please do not email for any other reason-- only if you haven't received email from us.
