AWP Saturday Night

Black Ocean ( brings together a spectrum of influences—from silent films to punk rock—and manifests that aesthetic in the books we print, the shows we produce, and the work we promote. In conjunction with our book releases, we stage parties, concerts, exhibitions and other celebrations around the country. Our readers will include Zachary Schomburg and Paula Cisewski.

No Tell Books ( is an independent press specializing in poetry founded in 2006 by Reb Livingston, publisher and editor of No Tell Motel ( Their readers will include: Bruce Covey, Jill Alexander Essbaum, Shafer Hall, Reb Livingston, Karl Parker, Laurel Snyder.

Octopus Books ( is a small press launched by the editors of Octopus Magazine.

Octopus #8, a set of 8 chapbooks, is currently available. Also, chapbooks from Lily Brown and Jonah Winter, and a full-length book of poems from Julie Doxsee are forthcoming. Reading for Octopus tonight are: Julie Doxsee and Lily Brown.

Pilot Books ( is the paper cousin of the online poetry magazine Pilot. We strive to publish innovative work, and believe that innovative work demands innovative design.

Alas, I will have to miss AWP and the No Tell Make Out party this year. But, hopefully, people will actually use the make out room this time.
