Twenty-three years! As we edge even closer to twenty-five (as well as above/ground press' 800th publication, due any day now!). Can you believe it? There's been a ton of activity over the past year around above/ground press, from the continuation of Chaudiere Books (the trade extension, one might say, of above/ground) to The Factory Reading Series and the poetry journal Touch the Donkey (included as part of the above/ground press subscription!). Just what else might happen? Current and forthcoming items include works by Pearl Pirie, nathan dueck, philip miletic, Sandra Moussempès (trans. Eléna Rivera), Carrie Hunter, George Bowering, Carrie Olivia Adams, Geoffrey Young, Dana Claxton, Julia Polyck-O'Neill, Sarah Swan, Andrew McEwan, Michael Turner, Buck Downs, John Barton and derek beaulieu (2016), as well as a whole slew of publications that haven't even been decided on yet.
2017 annual subscriptions (and resubscriptions) are now available: $65
(CAN/US; $90 international) for everything above/ground press makes
from when you subscribe through to the end of 2017, including chapbooks, broadsheets, The Peter F. Yacht Club and Touch the Donkey (have you been keeping track of the dozens of interviews posted to the Touch the Donkey site?).
who subscribes on or by November 1st will also receive the last
above/ground press package (or two) of 2016, including many of those exciting
new titles listed above (plus whatever else the press happens to produce before the turn of the new year), as well as Touch the Donkey #11 (scheduled to release on October 15)!
