SPD News & Reviews
SPD was delighted to see that 4 out of the 5 finalists for this year's Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Poetry were from SPD presses. Congratulations to all the finalists and their publishers, and we like our odds for winning!
Always great to see small press books featured extensively at the New Yorker, even if it's the New Yorker's blog. Stephen Burt's passionate review and overview of Ronald Johnson's masterpiece should bring new readers for this SPD small press classic. Burt also has some typically precise praise for Peter O'Leary's wonderful SPD title, Phosphorence of Thought. Get one or both for 30% by using the discount code "NewYorker".
We were very sad to hear of the death of Colleen Lookingbill on Sunday, March 30th. Colleen was an SPD author and editor, co-publisher with Elizabeth Robinson of EtherDome, a friend to several of us on the SPD staff and a wonderful presence in the Bay Area, where she will be sorely missed. Do take a look at Kevin Killian's wonderful remembrance to get a feeling how much Colleen meant to the Bay Area poetry community.
