Coming Soon, Anti-Social Network, a chapbook of poetry from Redneck Press

Rusty Barnes reported it on their site HERE but basically it says this....

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:

Den­nis Mahagin's chap­book Fare will be pub­lished in 2011. Den­nis is a poet and writer from the Pacific North­west.  He was born in Butte, Mon­tana, and stud­ied Music, Lit­er­a­ture  and His­tory at Whit­man Col­lege and Port­land State Uni­ver­sity.  His poems and sto­ries have appeared in mag­a­zines such as  Exquis­ite Corpse, 42opus, Absinthe Lit­er­ary Review, Stir­ring, Night Train, Key­hole, 3 A.M., Thieves Jar­gon, Sto­ry­glos­sia, and Smoke­long Quar­terly.
