By the Light of a Neon Moon

By the Light of a Neon Moon, edited by Janet LoweryOur first poetry anthology is at the printer!

If you’ve been following us for a while, you will have seen our calls for submissions to the Dancehall Poetry Anthology. We are happy to announce that it has gone to press, and we hope to have copies available at AWP! Editor Janet Lowery named the collection By the Light of a Neon Moon and Jacqui Davis created this eye-catching cover for it. We are humbled by the quality of the poetry we received, and we cannot wait to share it with everyone. The contributors are already discussing the fact that the launch party should include a dance. We aren’t sure how we’ll pull that off, but we love the idea!
