> While browsing through the November /December 2007 issue of Poets and Writers, I spied the Rose Metal Press logo in the Small Press Points section. Rose Metal published Claudia Smith’s chapbook The Sky Is A Well and Other Shorts earlier this year, after Claudia was named the winner of their first annual short-short chapbook competition. And sure enough, Claudia and her chapbook were mentioned as well. To see for yourself, click here.
Claudia has been published in SmokeLong four times, and two of the stories in her chapbook first appeared on its website. Read “The Sky is a Well” from issue 11, and “Her Lips” from issue 13.
To purchase The Sky Is A Well and Other Shorts act soon! Claudia recently told me that her chapbook is nearly sold out! Order from Rose Metal Press, or Powell’s Books.
Congratultions, Rose Metal and Claudia!
