Thrilled for our upcoming release of Elisabeth Houston's Standard American English (out June 10th!). Here's a peek at the cover with art by Lauren Kelley and design by HR Hegnauer.

Houston's debut book was selected by Tracie Morris in our 2020 Open Call. Write us at [email protected] or DM us if you're interested in reviewing!

A magnificent upending of language.
— Khadijah Queen

[A] rollicking hybrid tour-de-force… Houston indicts every individual’s displaced capacity for cruelty under the patina of hipness.
— Tracie Morris, author of Who Do with Words

There are writers who write and use language that already exists and lead us into new ways of seeing. There are also writers who invent language and form who carve out words and names and experiences from earth’s substance and bring a new universe into existence. Elisabeth Houston is an interdisciplinary artist, a poet, and is such an inventor, a new voice to ready ourselves for, a voice we need.
— Pamela Sneed, author of Funeral Diva

"I’ve felt when writing these texts as if I were both looking down and gazing up simultaneously, infused with an insatiable vertigo not unlike strange moons casting occulted rays through heathen binary suns that seem to spin at once in conflicting dimensions at differing levels of speed. The result from this turbulent tidal seismicity is that light emits itself via frictive streaks and angles, through darting shards of voltage... This, for me, is The Coming Mental Range where psychic light naturally casts its rays out of ciphers."
— Will Alexander, from the Introduction

Get ready for Will Alexander's *The Coming Mental Range* out this summer from Litmus! Here's a sneak peek at the covers, with art by the inimitable Will Alexander & stunning design by HR Hegnauer.

BODY WAS is a book-length sequence of small moments, gestures and expressions stretched to incredible lengths; stretched not as a way of thinning, but as a way to articulate and pause, each moment fragmented into portions, and where lightning strikes in such slow-motion that every spark appears, if in the briefest sense, self-contained: brilliant, held and heard.
— Rob McLennan

A beautiful review of Isabelle Garron's *Body Was* translated by Eléna Rivera at Rob McLennan's blog!

The sign that greets us every day as we enter our studio! ❤️ 😂

But seriously... we *are* working hard to bring you some mind-bending books of poetry in 2022, and we are also very excited to be bringing out several FREE, open-access digital publications in the coming year— including the 9th annual READ journal of inter-translation, co-published with Tamaas, and new Open Poetics digital-critical editions on our Manifold platform (***Etel Adnan's From A to Z and Lyn Hejinian's Happily***).

We've also got a kari edwards teaching guide coming your way very soon, made in collaboration with Julian Talamantez Brolaski and erica kaufman. And in case you missed it, our new Aja Couchois Duncan teaching guide, made in collaboration with the author, is also live on our site!

Maybe we should amend the poster: "Everything for Everyone / Everything for Ourselves!"
