Congratulations to these poets on the publication of their new books! Join us on Lit Youngstown’s YouTube Channel for a live reading Sunday, September 20 at 7:00 pm EST.
Cathryn Essinger is the author of four books of poetry, A Desk in the Elephant House, My Dog Does Not Read Plato, What I Know About Innocence, and this new book—The Apricot and the Moon. Her poems have been nominated for Pushcarts and “Best of the Net,” featured on The Writer’s Almanac and in American Life in Poetry.
New books are a critical element in the literary landscape, and a great personal accomplishment. What a let-down to have a book emerge to a pandemic lock-down instead of a live celebration.
Let’s fix that! Lit Youngstown is hosting an online Sunday readers series for authors of new titles.
The submission portal is here, for those whose books came out anytime in 2020. We look forward to celebrating and promoting these publications and their authors.
