Four Ways We're Celebrating the Cruelest Month
Poet and 2013 Gatewood Prize judge Eileen Myles

Our editors read every manuscript that’s submitted to the Gatewood Prize and we want nothing more than to greet each morning with a new crop of daring, lovely, and downright exciting manuscripts. Won’t you send us something? This year's judge is the AMAZING and TALENTED Eileen Myles!!

Switchback Books at the last Karaoke Idol in August, 2012.
Beauty Bar, Chicago, IL
This competition pits local nonprofits against each other to compete in an epic karaoke contest to raise funds for their organizations. The last time we competed, we thrilled audiences with our melodic crooning and choreographed dances. This time we’re bringing the serious beats, tutus, “feminist poet” wifebeaters, and killer moves in full force.
