Blue Graffiti is a new collection of Dianne Borsenik‘s best haiku/senryu.  A careful hand creation, this 34-page chapbook is saddle stitched, uses high quality cotton paper and features cover art by Steven Smith.  A feast for both the eyes and mind, Blue Graffiti is available for only $5 US from Crisis Chronicles Press, 420 Cleveland Street, Elyria, Ohio 44035.  You may also order via PayPal.

Dianne Borsenik, a former flower child and current redhead, lives with husband James near Elyria, Ohio’s beautiful Cascade Park, where she found the “blue graffiti.” She has had poems and haiku published in a number of journals and anthologies, including Rosebud, Slipstream, Haiku World: An International Poetry Almanac and The Magnetic Poetry Book of Poetry. With poetry partner John Burroughs, she co-produces/co-hosts the Lix & Kix Poetry Extravaganza and Snoetry: A Winter Wordfest series.  Find her at

Plus we intend to publish at least three more titles by the end of 2011.  Anyone who donates (or has donated) $200 or more to the press is automatically considered a lifetime subscriber and will receive a copy of each future Crisis Chronicles Press publication as a token of our immense gratitude.  Since I plan to keep publishing for many years, I believe this will turn out to be a fantastic bargain.
