Upper Rubber Boot Books announces the Floodgate Poetry Series: Three Chapbooks in a Single Volume.
Chapbooks—short books under 40 pages—arose when printed books became affordable in the 16th century. In the tradition of 18th and 19th century British and American literary annuals and the Penguin Modern Poets Series of the ’60s and ’70s, Floodgate will house emerging and established poets in innovative and attractive editions.
Floodgate is edited by Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum and is published annually in autumn. Submissions to Floodgate are currently by invitation only.
