Edie Meidav's brilliant new story collection, Kingdom of the Young, published on Tuesday, April 11th, 2017. A starred review from Kirkus calls the collection:
"A probing and deeply ruminative cross-genre odyssey. Meidav pulls readers through a series of dreamy, complex, poignant stories with language that is by turns gauzy-poetic and pinpoint-precise but unfailingly inventive.... A penetrating collection that glides among an impressive breadth of storytelling modes with warmth and easy brilliance."

Jenny Johnson, author of In Full Velvet, was interviewed in Entropy Magazine for #NationalPoetryMonth. When asked, "Why Poetry?" She says:
"...the work of writing poems and reading poems has made me a better person, can make us better people. In this way, since the personal is political, poems can be catalysts for change."

The Brand New Catastrophe, debut memoir from Mike Scalise, was reviewed in The Collagist. They write:
“A simple and human story, about fear, self-doubt, deep-seated family resentment that goes back generations, romantic love, and a mother-son rivalry full of mutual love, respect, and animosity…. What makes The Brand New Catastrophe so beautiful is that Scalise genuinely never wants your pity, or even sympathy. If anything, he only wants to make you laugh (his biggest priority) and to tell you something honest about his fear, self-doubt, and insecurity…. The Brand New Catastrophe is beautiful because of its true sense of intimacy."
