What a lovely review of Marisa Crawford's The Haunted Houseover at The Rumpus!

Some highlights:

The poems read like they were scribbled in a notebook, in class, right before the bell rings. They come in thick stream-of-consciousness paragraphs, numbered lists, and long-lined odes that almost trip over their own gushing. The key here, though, is the almost; you can follow Crawford’s rambling thoughts as far as they go—almost too far!—but they always stop right where they need to.

There have always been teenage girls battling Sharptooths in one way or another, and always will be: “Your frills are / made of bone and we were born that way.”

It’s a perfectly ironic scenario: crushed by the expectations, or crushed again by the attempt to defy them? Either way, you’re crushed.

Thanks much to Maree Hamilton and the Editors!

In case you aren't going to make it out to D.C. to see us at AWP in February, we'd like to show you our pretty new brochure.

It's so pretty, in fact, that we'd like to recommend our designer, Tammy Hocking of Catnip Design, for any upcoming design projects you may have! She was a joy to work with, and we can be a bit demanding. Hope you enjoy!
