Tabios expands her activities. to wit



I was recently honored to be asked by a wonderful press to join its editorial board.  In this role, I would be in a position to recommend manuscripts or writers to the press to consider for publication.  It’s a worthwhile gig and I genuinely admire this press, such that I initially replied with an enthusiastic YES! to their invitation.  But this is one of those situations where I don’t know yet about my capacity to find manuscripts or writers I’d recommend–specifically, recommend for this press which is interested in innovative poetry and hybrid work, as well as translations and collaborations.  So the press gave me permission to query my network (through this blog and other places) to see if I have enough material that would make it worth my time (and theirs) to formally join their board.

So, please consider this A GLOBAL CALL FOR INNOVATIVE WORK! 

You do not have to have the manuscript finished as you read this Call.  That is, you may have a draft or an idea that you think you could finalize into a manuscript you could send to me in the near future. If you are in this position and would be interested in submitting it for potential publication, you can email me at galateaten@gmail.com to inform me.

I am not looking for manuscripts at this stage.  I am simply looking for reasonable possibilities of such manuscripts being submitted to me for consideration sometime in the near future.  Email me replies like “Yes, I have a manuscript now” or “Yes, I could have a manuscript ready in _________ (fill in the time frame).”

The idea, again, is for me to anticipate that as a Board member, I will be able to follow up with a group of people who will have manuscripts for my review and which I might be able to recommend for publication. That’d be manuscripts that would fit the press’ interest in innovative poetry and hybrid work, as well as translations and collaborations.

Call Email me!  Email me, too, if you have questions!  Let me know by the end of the month: June 30, 2015.

If we don’t know (of) each other, feel free to include a bio.

Sincerely and with all Good Wishes to your Writing,

Eileen R. Tabios

look who’s singing

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 11:38 am


9 years ago Bill Allegrezza published my first chapbook through his then very young moria. today he published my new chapbook look who’s singing which makes me very happy. first of all because moria is still alive & kicking. & of course because this slice of madness found such a good home. for all practical purposes it’s a continuation of the song part of my first book, road song for (corrupt press, 2011), though this time it’s more punk & such than last time. on the site there’s a free pdf if you’d like to read it before you buy the paper copy

of you

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 2:15 pm

221837_1041063040673_1991_ni’m happy to announce that swirl editions has published Of You by Maxwell Clark. he submitted it before i set the unnegotiable limit of 50 pages for e-books but i think i would have made an exception anyway because i really like the baroque wildness of it

these were the 4 e-books waiting to be published, i’m adding translations to a volume by Tomas Ekström, but that might not be done until april, so the field is wide open for new manuscripts. guidelines are simple. maximum 50 pages, word document, if possible formatted as A5. vispo as jpegs. & where are the manuscripts by all ye brilliant women?

issue 3 of the zine is slowly under construction, so if you have a few pieces you’re welcome to submit. unpublished in any form. same file requirements. & translations of living & consenting writers (that goes for e-books as well)
