“I believe that publishing a poetry book with a huge publishing company isn’t a smart move. They aren’t interested in new poets and they won’t do any publicity for books that have very little chance of selling. A small press has more to lose and is heavily invested in making a splash in the poetry world, no matter how small that splash might be. I’m sure there are great editors at some of the big publishing companies, but the small presses seem to be doing a much better job of publishing new poetry.”–Sarah C. Harwell, on the publication of her first book Sit Down Traveler, from this week’s feature interview. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Indiana Review! The Kenyon Review! Pleiades Press!
