Dear friends and readers: it is with great pleasure that we announce a new chapbook, “Return” by Adrienne Dodt. Adrienne’s poems engage in rich avant-garde experiments with the material of language. Zir poems are at once physical and metaphysical: examining the stuff of the body and the stuff of thought, “To cave in the face of / permanent,” as ze writes in the stunning long poem, “The Material of Memory.” Ze’s chapbook will be released on March 28th at a release party in Chicago. We are raising funds to help cover the printing costs associated with printing and building her book -- which was designed in house by Damask guru Liana Katz. 

Adrienne Dodt is a poet, essayist, and amateur photographer. Adrienne’s work can be found in The Body Electric anthology and Fact-SimileApothecary, and Con/Crescent magazines. Zir comics have been featured in Whrrds and In-Stereo Press. Adrienne is a regular contributor to Spoon River Poetry Review blog and is a member of The Next Objectivists poetry collective in Chicago.Ze was the Poetry Editor for Bombay Gin magazine in 2008-2009, and ze edited the Next Objectivists’ chapbook Collective Unconsciousnesses in 2011. Adrienne currently teaches at a few community colleges in Chicago.

Risks and challenges

Building a beautiful handmade chapbook requires technical skill, flexibility, collaboration -- and above all, financial support. Damask Press has successfully released 6 chapbooks over the past 4 years. We are experienced in every aspect of book design and production -- and we've never lost money on a chapbook release. We anticipate no problems getting the book through press, mailing out rewards, and recouping our costs.
