In addition to traditional poetry collections and chapbooks, independent press YesYes Books also publishes a number of experimental and multimedia works, many of which incorporate visual art. Since its founding in 2011, the press's innovative projects have included Poetry Shots, fully illustrated digital chapbooks; and Frequencies, Volume One, a poetry and contemporary music anthology. The Bones of Us, a graphic poetry collection by J. Bradley with art by Adam Scott Mazer, will be released in February. The following images highlight a selection of both past and forthcoming experimental projects from YesYes Books.

    Frequencies, Volume One

    Released in January 2013, Frequencies, Volume One is a chapbook and music anthology that features poetry by Bob Hicok and Phillip B. Williams and short fiction by Molly Gaudry, with accompanying music by indie rock bands Here We Go Magic and Outlands and singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten. The cover art was created by Matthew Cusick, a painter and collage artist who creates realistic scenes and portraits using old maps.

    Poetry Shots: American Poem

    In The Blue Teratorn, released as part of the Poetry Shots series in 2012, Dorothea Lasky’s poems are illustrated by Kaori Mitsushima. In a post on her blog, Lasky describes this digital chapbook as "a flock of scary birds" meant to accompany her third full-length collection, Thunderbird, published in 2012 by Wave Books.

    Poetry Shots: How We Molested the Sky

    The Bones of Us: A Letter to a Wedding Photo That's Not Mine

    For the graphic poetry collection The Bones of Us, artist Adam Scott Mazer illustrated J. Bradley's poems first in pencil, then overlaid in ink applied with a brush. In the poem "A Letter to a Wedding Photo That's Not Mine," Bradley writes, "May you never need / to throw your memories / out an airlock, watch / as they turn blue."

    The Bones of Us: Cosmonaut

    In "Cosmonaut," Bradley describes a house as "a pulmonary system of pocket universes" where "we lose ourselves in the vacuum of Auto-Tune, drift toward the outer rims of conversations and plastic Dixie Cups." He writes, "In the morning, we will smack our lips, ruin the cotton in our cheeks; our heads are capsules with cracks in the seams."

    The Bones of Us: Yale Street

    Mazer's illustrations provided inspiration for many of the revisions that J. Bradley made to his poems. In "Yale Street," Bradley writes, "When we traded electric currents through the tips of our noses, revenge evaporated from my body. I clutched your hip like the handle of a hammer, a box of nails; you are a home worth building."

Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.

Super Arrow is a biannual online journal for experiments in writing and art. Our publication is designed for community and creative risk. The name of the journal is a partial english-to-english homophonic transliteration of "supererogatory," or, beyond what is required. We mean this, whatever that means to you.

Tips From the Editor: 

Read the issues archive (superarrow.org/Archive.html) to get a bead on our proclivities.

The journal is called Telephone, like the children’s game in which phrases
change as you whisper them from one person to the next. We feature a handful of
poems from one foreign poet in each issue, which are then translated roughly
ten times by multiple different poets and translators. There are no rules about
how each poem should be translated and we are hoping to solicit a variety of
interpretations.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do not send unsolicited translations. Please contact us if you are interested in participating in an issue of Telephone.

The Montucky Review is an online poetry publication that seeks well
crafted poetry from both established and novice writers alike. We hope
to be the antithesis of all the snootiness and pretension that dominates
the poetry publishing world. That is not to say that we will publish
everything that comes our way, we won't. Well established writer or
first submission, you have an equal chance of being published or
rejected. We look for poetry we like, with "like" being very subjective,
indeed.

Please do read our guidelines!
