SpringGun Press is excited to announce the titles and authors to be included in the 2012 catalog. After the Summer open reading period, three books of poetry have been chosen to be published in Spring 2012. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all who sent their wonderful manuscripts to the open reading period.
The 2012 titles are:
The Flasher by Adam Peterson
The Silhouettes by Lily Ladewig
Congratulations to Adam, Chad, Joe, and Lily-we are so excited about getting these wonderful volumes into the world. Books will be available for purchase at the SpringGun Press/Subito Press table at the AWP Bookfair in Chicago in the Table Y section and online at http://springgunpress.com/books. Other outlets will be announced as they become available.
On a lighter note, we promise that the consistency of a “The _____” title system was purely coincidental.
Lily Ladewig is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst M.F.A. Program for Poets and Writers. Her poems have appeared in Conduit, Denver Quarterly, H_NGM_N, Salt Hill, and SUPERMACHINE.

About SpringGun Press:
SpringGun is a registered not-for-profit web-based journal and print press promoting all forms of previously unpublished quality contemporary writing and interdisciplinary digital art.
We’re interested in the internet as a medium both for its networking potential and accessibility; we want to create a platform for newer art forms to emerge and pull new intelligent voices into the literary fold. We’re interested in writers who read vigorously and are invested in the continued advancement and development of both “print” and digital writing. We’re looking for artists who believe that it’s important to interact with a community of ideas and artists, who believe no good art happens in isolation.
