chapbooks

Originally launched in 1999, the initial volume of the duration press series of international poetry published a number of authors in English translation. The final chapbooks in this initial run were released in 2005.

Now, more than a decade after the conclusion of the first volume, the chapbook series is being relaunched, with the first titles appearing in the Summer of 2016. This new series will feature three titles per year, all released during the Summer months, and will include a mix of works in translation alongside original works written in English. Each chapbook will be limited to 100 copies, with some 50 copies of each title available for sale as part of a subscription bundle, and will all be hand-sewn. The subscription price will be $20 for all three titles.

Volume Two

Titles for 2016 will be announced in late 2015 / early 2016.
