    "We collected our evenings in jars,
    fireflies skeletons of light
    shimmering in the night."

Photos from our Winter Meeting

We had a fantastic Winter Meeting in January. Huge thanks to our presenters, Metta S├íma and Shadab Zeest Hashmi, and everyone who came out. Congratulations to Stan Absher, who was officially announced winner of the 2015 Lena Shull Book Contest — and shoutouts to the NC presses who came and shared their work with us: Backbone Press, Carolina Wren Press, Horse and Buggy Press, Jacar Press, Longleaf Press, Sable Books, St. Andrews University Press, Unicorn Press.
