In exciting new news, Redneck Press and Fried Chicken and Coffee will be publishing three poetry chapbooks in 2010/2011: new chapbooks from Dennis Mahagin, Timothy Gager, and Rosemary Royston.
Kenneth Clark's Eggs of American Songbirds was officially released on 12÷13÷10.
Submissions for the 2012 chapbook series are open. Please use Submishmash and be sure to include details of why you think Redneck Press/FCAC is the right press for you. Please don't send me bullshit. Read the blog, the stories, the poems, the manifesto, and be sure you've read a published poem or two within the last century and can demonstrate that knowledge by what you've written. You could buy and read our first chapbook release, too. That wouldn't hurt your chances at all.
Our next chapbooks will be from:
