Best Poetry Chapbooks of 2011

These were my favorite chapbooks of 2011
  1. Brian Teare: {upward arrow}
  2. Mairead Byrne: Lucky (Little Red Leaves)
  3. Tyrone Williams: Pink Tie (Hooke Press)
  4. Patrick Culliton: Hornet Homily (Octopus Books)
  5. George Kalamaras: Symposium on the Body's Left side (Shivastan Publishing)
  6. Micah Ballard & Sunnylyn Thibodeaux (Auguste Press)
  7. Bob Arnold: Forever (Longhouse)
  8. Anne Bauer: Fine Absence (PSP)
  9. Amy O'Neill: Rhymes with Fever (self published)
  10. Juliet Cook: Post Stroke (Dusie Kollectiv)

Writers on this list are openly invited to submit a manuscript for publication (unless one was previously published by us). So far I have read manuscripts from two of these authors. Pavement Saw Press will publish a collection by Patrick Culliton, Horse Ballast, in 2012.

For the next "best of" chapbook list (2012), if you are an author or publisher and want to send a published chapbook for review, all will be read.
