Big Game Books

We seek work that is intellectually and emotionally engaging. Something about thirty degrees left of normal. If you're trying to get a feel for our aesthetic, please check out our previously published chapbooks and tinysides. That should give you a fairly good sense of what we're about.

Birds of Lace

Birds of Lace is a feminist press founded & edited by Gina Abelkop. Born in 2005 and currently based in Athens, GA, Birds of Lace publishes chapbooks and books by emerging writers. We love words that, placed and spaced just so, gush right through the middle of your willing guts and spit out into the ocean, dragging you happily behind them.
