Abigail Beckel and Kathleen Rooney in The Editor’s Corner at VIDA March 20, 2013: Over at VIDA, Abigail Beckel and Kathleen Rooney of the hybrid-genre Rose Metal Press talk about their roles as editors and publishers. We're especially interested in presses that support as yet-undeffined genres, so we were especially curious to hear Beckel and Rooney discuss their editorial philosophy. Our main philosophy/mission is to [...] by

New to the Archive January 8, 2013: Let's crack into the stacks to see what's been added to the online archive since we last checked in. Joining the archive (yes, that's a ligature pun) are a heap of poems by Forrest Gander. We like this one ("Bridge & Swimmer") in particular. We're slowly adding heft to our Robert Duncan offerings with "This Place Rumord to Have Been [...] by

‘I’m glad you asked about smells’: An Interview with Kathleen Rooney December 6, 2012: Head over to The Nervous Breakdown for this interview with Kathleen Rooney author of, most recently, Robinson Alone, which takes Weldon Kees's "Robinson" poems as a starting point. A sample: Why are you planning on doing most of your readings for this book in costume/drag? Kees was a meticulous dresser, and so is Robinson—both [...] by

I am especially struck by this paragraph: Third Woman Press began originally as an antidote to loneliness, when Alarcón -- a specialist in feminist critical theory, cultural criticism, and [...] by

I’m a Townie: Our Books as Places April 14, 2011: “Though you've never seen it before, it must be a town you've lived in all your life.” — Richard Hugo, The Triggering Town In an earlier post, Kathleen Rooney asks for a better metaphor for what our books become to us after they are written. I like that she emphatically denies that they are anything like, “our kids.” I admit, I’ve [...] by

We’d Rather Have the Iceberg than the Ship April 10, 2011: Rachel Zucker’s timely post on the timeless immediately brought a certain poem to mind. Then when I saw Kathleen Rooney’s post about the Titanic (sinking like an Oreo in milk!), I thought she had beat me to the punch. The Titanic looms large (as it were) in our household, on account of our having a six-year old boy who can’t get enough of [...] by
