2016 is shaping up to be a huge year for Seven Kitchens, and I’m thrilled to announce that the Editor’s Series will include new chapbooks from Liz Ahl and Dakota Garilli. Liz’s collection, Home Economics, is due out midsummer, and Dakota’s Call It Something Different is scheduled for an August release. Both titles were finalists for this year’s Robin Becker Chapbook Prize.


The hot, limited-edition Summer Kitchen Series will return this year, and we’ll lead off with a new chapbook from Mary Meriam: The Lesbian is due out in July, and you’re not going to want to miss your chance at one of only 49 copies.
