Dear Friends of Switchback,

As the year winds down and the holidays are here, we're reminded of how important the support of people like you means to an organization like ours.

We have had a big year, including the production of The Haunted House by the fabulous Marisa Crawford and the selection of the 2010 Gatewood Prize winner—Jennifer Tamayo's [Red Missed Aches]—by judge Cathy Park Hong. We have also had several fundraisers that allow us to keep publishing poetry by women thanks to the generosity of friends like you! We could not keep going without your support, and we are eternally grateful.

We hope you come see us at AWP in D.C. February 2-5 and help us celebrate our 5-year anniversary! More details to come soon.

Until then, we're wishing you and yours a happy holiday season.

Much love,

Brandi Homan, Becca Klaver, Hanna Andrews, and Whitney Holmes
Editors, Switchback Books

Chicago hosts a one-day-only pop-up bookshop featuring the best of the Midwest’s independent presses, bookstores, and magazines. They’ll be plenty of book shopping (just in time for the holidays) as well as sporadic performances, all at the Green Lantern Gallery, originally meant to be the home for the new bookstore The Paper Cave. Instead, we’ve condensed the bookstore into a one-day booktravaganza. This will be your first and last chance to shop Chicago’s curatorial pop-up bookshop. In honor of the venture there will be a ribbon un-cutting, and Artifice Magazine’s papier-mâché cave, which the curious can crawl inside to hear some of the best in Chicago readings.

Switchback Books joins presenters Featherproof Books, Green Lantern Press, Artifice Magazine and Knee-Jerk Magazine and participants Quimbys, Hobart, Poetry, The Book Cellar, Another Chicago Magazine, Rose Metal Press, THE2NDHAND, Dzanc, Make Magazine, The Show ‘n Tell Show, Other Voices Books, The Encyclopedia Show, Sara Ra...

Going Gaga for Artifice and Femininity in the 21st Century 

by Becca Klaver is up today over at Gaga Stimata!

"So you see, I recognize you, Gaga. People like us – artists, poets, singers, dancers, fashionistas – need, or once needed, to perform, bedeck, exhibit our identities as others, little monsters, queers, aliens, artists. It happens in every town. And in every town, now, people know who you are. And so they know who we are: you made us all famous."
