rob mclennan recently published a piece profiling five Canadian small and micro presses for Australian magazine Cordite Poetry Review. Apt. 9 is thrilled to be included in the list alongside The Emergency Response Unit, AngelHousePress, Nomados Literary Publishers, and Greenboathouse Press. Read the entire piece here.
We look up to each of these presses for a huge number of reasons, and think it very kind of rob mclennan to have included us in the list. It is certainly a kick-in-the-ass to get going. We’ve got new books for the Fall that we can barely keep quiet about (ask us over a beer and we’ll tell all). Details to come over the summer.
Thanks, rob! And thanks, Cordite! Please buy books from each of the above (as well as rob mclennan’s own above/ground press). You can see at least three of the five, and hopefully more, at the June Small Press Book Fair in Ottawa.
