Our hopes for 9train Press are pretty well laid out over on the main page, but it didn’t take very long in our discussions to realize that we wanted more from this project. A chapbook contest is definitely important to us, because it allows us to help promote some great poets.
One side effect, however, is exclusion. There can only be one winner. As a result, we wanted a place where we could really celebrate and highlight poets and artists we stumble across (or who stumble across us) that amaze us. People that make us scratch our heads as to how they haven’t recieved some sort of attention yet.
You can submit to this blog by shooting an email to Rattlings@9trainpress.com, but we’ll be on the hunt anyhow, looking under every digital rock for a poem that needs a spotlight.
