I am excited to announce that the press is now taking pre-orders for two outstanding new chapbooks: Tim Carter's THE PIGS and MJ Stratton's RIVER, OUR RIVER. You can read more about both books below and place your order today on the newly redesigned DMP website. Plus, over the next four weeks, I will be posting excerpts, interviews, and photos, and we will be holding a reading in early July via Zoom. Be on the lookout for more updates throughout June.
Also, with each sale, we will be raising money for the Urban Youth Collaborative, "an NYC student-led coalition fighting to end the school-to-prison & deportation pipeline." We feel that the UYC's work and its message are especially vital in a time when public schools continue to be a political battleground, too often resulting in the persecution and incarceration of the most marginalized. As before, writers will receive half of all income from sales, and the remaining half will be split equally between the press and the UYC.
Please help spread the word, and stay tuned for more news about both books in coming weeks!
