Alina Gregorian / Lonely Christopher / Monk Books / Updates

Ugh! It's been ages since I've done a post. So let's knock a few things out here.
For one, I featured Alina Gregorian on TheThe Poetry Blog's Poetry Comics section HERE.
This is a sample of her amazingness:


Alina is one of my dearest friends, and we've known each other for quite some time now. We met back in (2007?) when she was studying poetry at The New School's MFA and I was at the NYU MFA, and we ended up both having Matthew Zapruder teaching our classes. Thus, I have had the lovely honor of knowing her and her poems and her artwork, and I'm pleased to announce that Monk Books, will be putting out her chapbook Flying Bark this year! Hooray for Alina and for us! Here's a teaser:



Also we'll be publishing Lonely Christopher's full-length book of poetry DEATH AND DISASTER SERIES! That will be out this coming winter.


If you haven't checked out MONK BOOKS yet, PLEASE DO! We're rapidly expanding. We have two new books out and they're fantastic. Buy them now!
