Credo for the Checkout Line in Winter - Poems by Maryann Corbett
(with a Foreword by Peter Campion)

Credo for the Checkout Line in Winter  by Maryann Corbett is a finalist in the 2011 Able Muse Book Award.
Credo for the Checkout Line in Winter (with a Foreword by Peter Campion)
"What makes Maryann Corbett such a rare, excellent writer must be her talent for weaving together various artistic impulses, so that her poems often sound both traditional and brand new, both humorous and serious, both worldly-wise and, as John Keats once put it, “capable of being in uncertainties.” [She] remains a poet of the first order, and her poems are cause for gratitude, and deep enjoyment."
 
             – Peter Campion (from the Foreword)

Virtue, Big as Sin - Poems by Frank Osen (with an afterword by Timothy Steele)

* WINNER * 2012 Able Muse Book Award
* Included in the First Books Panel at West Chester University Poetry Conference this summer
Virtue, Big as Sin - Poems by Frank Osen (with an Afterword by Timothy Steele)
"Frank Osen’s
Virtue, Big as Sin offers one witty, elegant poem after another. The rhymes are especially clever, the meter sure, the stanzas well-shaped, but this poet’s sense of proportion is also reflected in wisdom (and what is wisdom but a sense of proportion?). An urbane maker of sparkling phrases like “that genuine Ur of the ersatz,” Osen can also write plainly, movingly, about a young girl’s funeral. And he reflects often on art itself, which he so rightly calls “the conjured awe.”

            – Mary Jo Salter (Judge, 2012 Able Muse Book Award)

Sailing to Babylon - Poems by James Pollock
(with a Foreword by Jeffery Donaldson)

* Included in the First Books Panel at West Chester University Poetry Conference this summer
* Currently, a Shortlisted Book for the 2013
Griffin Poetry Prize
* Finalist 2012 Governor General Literary Awards for Poetry
* Honorable Mention for the 2012 Posner Poetry Book Award
Sailing to Babylon - Poems by James Pollock (with a Foreword by Jeffery Donaldson)
"The sentence, in James Pollock's remarkably assured debut volume, is a unit of music and of time, a carefully modulated choreography that moves the reader through an elegantly constructed set of meditations on place and history and the education of the self . . . . Quietly confident, formally adept, assured in their music, these artful lyrics are not only an accomplishment in themselves but promise to register, as the poet says, 'the breaking changes of a life to come'."

        – Mark Doty, Judge's Citation, Griffin Poetry Prize shortlist
