Default Able Muse Press Announcement

Announcing . . . ABLE MUSE PRESS

I'm delighted to introduce, The Able Muse Press! This press will publish books and periodicals that enhance and supplement the online presence of the Able Muse -- essentially, usher the next, errr, chapter of Able Muse / Eratosphere! The goals of the Able Muse Press are:

- To publish a print version of Able Muse on an annual to semi-annual basis.

- To launch the press with the release of Able Muse Anthology, featuring the best of the work published in Able Muse over the years since its inception. That's the best selected from over a decade of poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, book reviews and art & photography!

- To publish one or more volumes from emerging or established poets and writers from Able Muse / Eratosphere and beyond.

Great news! Getting another book publisher who is not just open to writing in form, but enthusiastic about it, is a wonderful development.
