Horsebroke Press

Are you following the newly revived (or at least, now more publicly visible) Horsebroke Press, run by Jeff Blackman out of Ottawa? Really happy to see a new collection, The Desert and the Flood, from Amanda Besserer, a-long-time-ago co-editor and ally at In/Words (and classmate at Carleton) who always impressed and intimidated me. She published one previous chapbook close to a decade ago (November 2006 I believe). The new poems are strong and tough and honest and lovely and welcome after so long, and the books are beautifully made. The first printing sold out quickly, so Jeff made a second that is now available to order and will undoubtedly also sell out quickly. Snap it up! And grab Jeff’s own I don’t know what you need while you’re at it.
