I rarely write anything in this blog other than reviews of poetry. But I must take this space today to inform you of a new press that opens its submission period today for two full-length poetry book awards: Trio House Press. Formed by Tayve Neese with assistance from Dorinda Wegener and Lisa Sisler, this is a press that has done all the right things, and it hasn't even published its first book. From its final judges (Michael Waters and Ross Gay), its advisory board members (including, among others, Peter Campion and Ilya Kaminski), to its adherence to CLMP guidelines, Trio House is a class act.
I wholeheartedly recommend it for consideration for submitting your first or second book-manuscript. Here is their website, or you can click on the link below and to the left of this posting under "links" for all the details: http://www.triohousepress.org
