BOITOI Imposter filling in admirably on the morning swim, though now it definitely looks like we’re part of a dangerous cult. One of the dog walkers asked “how many vans do you have?”😂 #vanlife #ows #openwater Thanks to the team at @peacevans, a great place to rent these for your PNW adventure.

FABIÁN O. IRIARTENicole Wanders by the Riverbank(translation by Lawrence Schimel)

A new Lawrence Schimel translation from our forthcoming Fabián O. Iriarte collection, "The Confessions."

Lawrence writes, "While Fabián and I have not yet met in person, I’ve been reading his work for many decades, and was drawn to the poems in this book, which are both erudite and sexy, sophisticated but playful, unquestionably q***r in both content and how they tackle and subvert language."

Thanks to Poetry Northwest for publishing "Nicole Wanders by the Riverbank."

A 2021 Good Thing: Visit by Winter Texts publisher Conner Roberts.

One of my failings as a younger poet was understanding the importance of finding the right community— I just had no idea how to do that with the work I wanted to create. So it's not something I take for granted now, and grateful to the many publishers I have gotten to meet and badger with questions.

I am inspired by Conor's design work and his drive toward the community in Port Townsend, where he is based. He has managed to create a bookstore in the bar he works, host readings, and come up with some great projects thinking about the history and ecology of his community.

One helpful thing was talking about print runs. Winter Texts has tiny runs— feels good to sell out of books and easily stored. I've been using the other approach— the more you print, the less they cost per unit. I tend toward hopeful exuberance anyhow.

But I never once considered the cost of having to store books. In Seattle, the smallest temperature-controlled spaces are over $300 a month. This is the primary reason we have an office. Oy vey! Storing books is something I will spend money on twenty years from now. I did not plan for this at all.

Here's a Winter Text book you should know: Haines Whitacre's
"Accounts of Wreckage". A lively and well-designed poetic essay of sorts on John Henry- the song, the myth, the history. They are a young Seattle poet to keep on your reading list.

2021 was a challenging year for the press, and by the press, I mean me. Something I had not really grasped about small presses before I decided to start one is how small they actually can be, right? My energy is the press. My brain working right is the press. Since our house fire in the fall of 2019, I’ve organized five house moves and had seven “office spaces.” Both of my in-laws died— one slowly, one rather unexpectedly— and then there’s the pandemic, the doomscrolling— well, I am certainly floundering. And exhausted.

This picture was taken in early January when I was feeling hopeful. Since then, some days and weeks have been more optimistic than others. There are days I work on sharing poetry and writing I find interesting, which is a true gift. We will have some new books out this fall, and I can’t wait to get them into peoples’ hands and ears. Exciting partnerships, excellent writing, sweet audio— truly some beautiful work.

Once again, I am trying to “Turn on the Press.” So before we start poetry month, I thought I’d spend the week sharing some of the cool things that happened with Entre Rios Books and our authors in 2021. Mostly to buoy my own spirits and document things I was too overwhelmed to share. In this day of constant and endless handwaving and chatter, I need(ed) some time to be quiet and figure out what running a poetry press is means to me going forward.

After such rain, a beautiful afternoon in Seattle. From this spot on the lake, you could easily walk to our office, @floatingbridgepress and @wavepoetry. That’s a lot of poetry in a 45 minute walk!

When I used to take my father-in-law to the doctor’s, I’d often play Hugo del Carril on the way home and he’d sit in the back and sing along until he became too emotionally involved in his memories and start to cry. And then I’d turn it off and we’d talk about the old times. As I work to get our press turned back on after the brutality of last year’s chaos, I am sad he isn’t here to see how the house is turning out and to listen to this on the porch with us.

AGNI Online: A Cybercafé in Mar del Plata by Fabián O. Iriarte

Oh those long ago days sitting in a computer lab...being on the DL. Here's a new q***r translation by q***r poet Fabián Iriarte at AGNI. We'll be releasing Fabián's first full-length translation in English next spring, translated by the hard-working and amazing reader, publisher, and translator, Lawrence Schimel.

AGNI - Named after the Vedic fire-god. Transformative. The writer in witness, the imagination in combustion.

Happy to send some book for the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association's Rural Library project— this year helping rebuild the collection for the Blue River, Oregon library that was destroyed by forest fire.

Blue River is a place that has a lot of good memories for me and so was just so heart sick when the Holiday Farm Fire ripped through the community there.

Here's a chance to get some manuscript feedback from the amazing and innovative Carol Guess. I can't imagine a better author to work with if you are interested in collaborations, hybrid texts, and q***ring your work.

This is a 403 error, and it's not as ominous as it sounds. Bitly can only show this page to people who have permission to see it. Maybe what you are looking for can be found at Bitly.com.

Emily Wolahan writes of William Stobb's "You Are Still Alive" (42 Miles Press): "The speaker suggests, sure, those sunglasses sound ridiculous, but what isn’t? The everyday in all its strangeness creates a setting for a mind coming to terms with itself."
