The Essbaum-Sebastian Nanopress (cont’d)

This is a one-off poetry publishing project undertaken jointly by Jill Alexander Essbaum (editor) and me (poet).  Our idea is to pioneer a new publishing model that incorporates an outside editor’s judgment and gravitas while by-passing both the poetry contest gamble and the dwindling opportunities offered by heroic but limited-capacity no-fee/no-contest small presses.  We are working on my first poetry collection, Forever Will End on Thursday, which will eventually be DIY-published under both our names. Click here for an account of the project’s history and present status. It’s going well!

    Congratulations, Nic! Forever Will End on Thursday is an intriguing title.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the process.

  2. Thanks, Michelle! The hope is that this model will work for others as well and do its mite towards changing the dynamics in the poetry publication world.
