AWP 2020 SAN ANTONIO: Y'all going? We are! We will be sharing a table (T1868) at the AWP Bookfair with 7.13 Books, and we'll have copies of all of our books for sale, so save space in your tote bag (or carry a backpack—pro-tip; ask me how I learned). We're super-excited to announce that Samantha Edmonds' chapbook The Space Poet, winner of the 2018 Turnbuckle Chapbook Contest, will be making its debut at AWP!
We will be hosting a number of our Split/Lip Press authors in "residencies," which means they will be In Residence at our Bookfair table and happy to sign copies of their books during set hours. Watch our Twitter account for updates.
Also—very excited to share our AWP off-site event at The Cherrity Bar in San Antonio on Thursday, March 5th, from 7-9pm. We are partnering with 7.13 Books for this event, and Jennifer Wortman, Melissa Matthewson, Samantha Edmonds, and Sara Schaff will be reading from their SLP books. The Cherrity Bar is super-close to the Convention Center (Google Maps says it's a 15min walk), plus you can score delicious ramen in-house. We'd love to see you!
1/1/20 NONFICTION MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS UPDATE: All nonfiction manuscripts submitted during our last reading period have been reviewed, and we are in the process of selecting our next nonfiction book (V EXCITING!). Responses will be going out this month! Thanks again to all of our submitters for trusting us with your work; it is a privilege and we don't take it lightly.
