Confessions: A Nightmare in Five Acts

We are pleased to announce that our latest project, Confessions:  A Nightmare in Five Acts. 

For this project, 22 poets came together to collaboratively write a single, full-length poem. Contributing poet Joshua Gage explains: 

"Based on the cinquain form, this poem moves through five acts, exploiting gothic literary tropes to create a dreamlike narrative."   

Confessions features the work of William C. Burns, Jr., Gary Blankenship, Michael L. Evans, Joshua Gage, Toni J. Gardner, Sandra Kasturi, Deborah P. Kolodji, David C. Kopaska-Merkel, Sandra Lindow, Terra Martin, Robin Mayhall, Karen L. Newman, Rhonda Parrish, Pamela Pignataro, Terrie Leigh Relf, Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell, Shanna, J.E. Stanley, Marcie Lynn Tentchoff, Gene VanTroyer, Scott Virtes, and Stephen M. Wilson. Cover art is by JuliSnow White.

The book will be available July 10, 2014 but can be pre-ordered through our site store. At the authors' requests, proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Science Fiction Poetry Association (SFPA).
