ECHO, ECHO, LIGHT lands with Slope Editions!

Big news: my chapbook Echo, Echo, Light has found a home with Slope Editions! As the winner of the Slope Editions Chapbook Prize, it will be published this spring. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Caroline Cabrera, Christopher Janke, Kelin Loe, and the whole Slope team! Here’s the press release:

ANNOUNCING KIT FRICK, WINNER OF THE 2ND ANNUAL SLOPE EDITIONS CHAPBOOK PRIZE

Kit Frick’s ECHO, ECHO, LIGHT wins Chapbook Contest!

Announcing Kit Frick, winner of the 2nd Annual Slope Editions Chapbook Prize

We’re excited to announce that Slope Editions’ editorial board has selected Kit Frick’s ECHO, ECHO, LIGHT as Slope Edition’s 2nd Annual Chapbook Prize winner. The chapbook is slated for publication in May 2013.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Kit Frick studied poetry at Sarah Lawrence College and received her MFA from Syracuse University, where she served as poetry editor for Salt Hill. Her poems have recently appeared in places like DIAGRAM, Conduit, CutBank, Handsome, and Forklift, Ohio, and have been featured on Verse Daily. A 2012 “Discovery” / Boston Review semi-finalist, Kit is the Chapbook Editor for Black Lawrence Press. Kit lives in Brooklyn with her husband and and lives online at http://www.kitfrick.com.

Slope Editions congratulates Kit Frick, the finalists, and the semifinalists for this year’s prize. And we thank all the authors for prodding and provoking us with their work. We recognize, as editors and authors, that it is a lot of work to write a poem, let alone a manuscript full of them, and we were awed by the dedication and talent evident in the manuscripts we received.

Slope Editions is a small publishing firm, and we appreciate your support. We hope you will check out ECHO, ECHO, LIGHT.

Thank you authors and readers for your support of contemporary innovative poetry.
