Hiatus!

Just as an FYI, Upper Rubber Boot Books is on hiatus throughout the end of 2019 and all of 2020. We’re spending our time getting out the vote. Responses to emails will be slower than usual and we are closed to submissions. Thanks for your patience.

The work of administering Small Press Week has been kindly taken over by Santa Fe Writers Project who have moved it to November 30th – December 6th, 2019.

Stay Thirsty

A new review of Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 5:

What follows Price of Admission is a chapbook that pushes the boundaries between traditional poetic form and everyday minutia. If the speaker’s eyes in Price of Admission look everywhere all at once, monitoring the traditions of strangers and family alike, then the speaker’s eyes in On All Fronts look squarely in the mirror. On All Fronts concerns itself with investigating multiple types of fronts—or appearances—and relays varying definitions and quotes including the word “fronts” throughout. […] On All Fronts addresses prominent cultural issues crippling the black community, like in the poem “Meanwhile, at a black funeral home in Chicago, a mortician explains why he mourns, weeps at his expanding profit margin”, which reads, in full:
     “We running out of coffins.”
[…] Two engines steer the narrative of T.R. Hummer’s Dark Meter: the speaker’s dexterous attention to and control of meter, and the tension that such discipline towards rule and form creates when situated within the current American political climate. […] Dark Meter is a haunting, lyrically agile collection, a fast-paced yet intimate read that veers between subtle political commentary and moments of unapologetic self-reflection.

Edited by Phoebe Wagner and Brontë Christopher Wieland, Sunvault is the first English-language anthology to broadly collect solarpunk short fiction, artwork, and poetry.
