Meet our New Authors!

The Chapbook Festival at the CUNY Graduate Center hosted a number of exciting presses on May 3 and 4.

little scratch pad press was there, and offered instant publishing of new works for attendees. The press will be working on new editions in this format in upcoming weeks, so stay tuned for event information.

The Festival offered a good way for the press to get back up to scratch.

Here are the new authors, and the titles of the poems published in unique editions of one copy, printed onto the air of the concourse:

The marathon reading introduced me to many authors I had not heard before, and I went home with a caddy full of new chaps. I'll be writing on these books in coming weeks.
