Thanks for your support! It’s what keeps us going.

As we round out our tenth year of publishing, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of Litmus Press. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to fulfill our mission of publishing innovative, cross-genre writing, poetry, and works in translation. 

 In 2011, contributions from our community helped support the publication of four new titles: How Phenomena Appear to Unfold, a reprint of Leslie Scalapino’s 1989 Poets & Poets collection that includes new and previously unpublished essays and poetic works; Aufgabe #10, featuring French poetry in translation guest edited by Cole Swensen; I Want to Make You Safe, the fourth book of poetry by New York based author Amy King; and O Bon, the third book of poetry by Brandon Shimoda.

Coming up in 2012

With deep cuts in arts funding, support from our community is more important than ever. In the coming year, support from you will help make the following projects possible:

  • Aufgabe #11, featuring El Salvadoran poetry and poetics in translation guest-edited by Christian Nagler
  • Then Go On, a collection of lyric prose pieces by Mary Burger
  • The first full-length publication in English of Sicilian poet Maria Attanasio‘s work, Amnesia of the Movement of Clouds / Of Red & Black Verse, translated from the Italian by Carla Billitteri
  • A translation by Jen Hofer of Amé.RICA (Tu valor de cambio), the third book by the Uruguyan poet Virginia Lucas
  • A digital archive of early and out-of-print issues of Aufgabe
  • Updating and redesigning the O Books website, promoting the current O Books list, and reprinting select titles, beginning with Plum Stones, Cartoons of No Heaven by Michael McClure
  • Readings and events in support of our authors and their work, including planning an event of French poetry and poetics featuring writers and translators from Aufgabe #10, and co-sponsoring a reading and discussion with Maria Attanasio and Carla Billitteri in conjunction with the release of Amnesia of the Movement of Clouds / Of Red & Black Verse
