Though NightBallet Press has been in existence for less than a year, it is already setting high standards in poetry publishing, having produced gorgeous new chapbooks by Jack McGuane, Chansonette Buck, Ralph La Charity, Terry Provost, George Wallace and T.M. Göttl — in addition to its acclaimed 2011 broadside series. I’m pleased to announce that on December 29th, NightBallet published a broadside of my poem “Low Kay Shun”:

“Low Kay Shun” is one of my favorite pieces to perform, and editor Dianne Borsenik did a lovely job on this publication. For the cover she chose a photo I took earlier this year on a trip to Detroit.  I’m extremely pleased with how it turned out.

This is actually my second NightBallet broadside, the first being “For Change Is,” published in September to give away at our 100 Thousand Poets for Change event in Elyria. In all, the press has published ten poetry broadsides so far. The other eight feature poems by Alex Gildzen, Heather Ann Schmidt, Tim Murray, Dianne Borsenik, Jack McGuane, Steve Brightman, John Dorsey and Dan Smith.  

While they last, NightBallet is offering its whole set of ten 2011 poetry broadsides (including my two) for only $5 (which includes postage).  What would Jesus Crisis do? Buy the set.
