Come out and support these wonderful poets/critics/translators!
A quick announcement about one of Switchback's very own... Becca Klaver, a founding editor, began her internship at the Poetry Foundation this week, and we are thrilled and wishing her all the best!
Also, Mónica it seems has been very busy as well... she's getting ready to leave for the MacDowell Colony in July.
We've all been very busy trying to get the word out about the Gatewood Prize, and it seems to be working, which is fabulous! We're also planning readings for Mónica in Chicago in February to celebrate her book release... and in New York and in Milwaukee and elsewhere.
Things are off to a very good start... we're so proud of both these girls!

We were so thrilled with how this kickoff event turned out. It's great to know that the home crowd has your back!
We've been working as hard as we can to get the word out about Switchback. Coming soon: Look for us at Printer's Ball at the Double Door on Thursday, July 20.
Much love and hugs, and more soon,
Thanks everyone who came to the editors' reading at the DvA Gallery on Friday... it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces as well as new ones! We had a great time, and will post pics soon.
If you're on myspace or friendster, please look us up...
Thanks also to everyone who has been helping us get the word out, linking to us, etc... You have no idea how much that means.
