A Lyricalmyrical chapbook, a collage & a whole lot of thanks



A June launch for my chapbook is nothing short of fortuitous. Getaways are what summer is all about, and This Cabin definitely pays homage to the great escape.

Some of the poems were written over last summer and fall, when I had the chance to soak up some sun and gear way down. There are some winter poems in there too. You can’t forget winter.

It’s no good launching alone. It’s no fun. Happily, Pat Connors and Brenda Clews will also be launching Lyricalmyrical chapbooks on the same night.

I’m in the process of experiencing some serious anticipation of the event. Luciano Iacobelli, who’s the publisher at Lyricalmyrical, will be hosting the evening at Q Space.

Q Space is not only home to many reading series in the city, it’s also home to Quattro Books. Yes, their office is in the back. Yes, Q Space is a cafĂ©, a bookstore and (depending on the night) also a bar. I couldn’t ask for a better place to launch a chapbook.

Lyricalmyrical chapbooks are all handmade. When does a poet get a chance to have a handmade book published and in hardcover no less? I’ve always loved the Lyricalmyrical chapbook and am feeling a lot of gratitude for the opportunity to publish with such a great press.
