From Charles Alexander of Chax Press

Notice the two Seattle writers included below and consider supporting this innovative publisher:

Dear Poetry Readers and Friends of Chax Press:

Poetry, for me, is a community of writers, readers, ideas, words, shapes, and sounds arranged or just appearing in space and time in such a way as to invite others to enter, to open the spaces words occupy. In this way, the work of Chax Press is part of this poetic endeavor, as well as a practice that expands and deepens the community of contemporary literature.

Chax is once again binding up a year rich in print. Our hand bound volume of Drum Hadley’s poems has been published, and pages of words and machine images by Nico Vassilakis are on the Vandercook Press as I write this. We are about to complete a year with lots of good news, like our summer Book Arts Workshop, and some fourteen book publications, including books by Alice Notley, Leslie Scalapino, Charles Olson, Tenney Nathanson, Jonathan Stalling, and many more…

Our upcoming books, that you will help to print with your contribution, come from diverse voices: Nico Vassilakis, Will Alexander, Eileen Myles, Andrew Levy, Linh Dinh, Jennifer Bartlett, Robert Mittenthal, Maureen Owen, and others that together form a distinct, unreplicated corps of authors whose work needs to be present in our time.

No amount of giving is too small or too large. For every gift over $60, we will even send you one of our earliest books, chosen specifically with you in mind…Chax Press is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and your contribution is tax deductible.
