NO COMEBACKS by Will Stenberg

In Uncategorized on October 31, 2019 at 11:34 am

Ahoy Good Reader.  It’s publishing season.  I love this time of year.  Proofs are in the can.  The covers are donezo.  There’s nothing left to do but barely and anxiously contain ourselves as we await our work to become manifest.  I published another writer this year–a classic poet, punkrocker, boxer and total sweetheart, Mr. Will Stenberg.  People love Will and I do, too.  When I say classic poet it’s ’cause I don’t wanna say real poet though that’s exactly what I mean.  Stenberg’s work is lean, taut yet whimsical.  He let’s the language do what it does.  There’s nothing wasted in his work.  He takes you to the canvas and lets you square off.

I couldn’t be happier for Will to be the first featured writer, besides myself, at Yellow Lark Press.  His people couldn’t either and pre-sales of No Comebacks have certainly reflected that.  It’s a boxing book, 42 poems, each dedicated to a champion of American boxing.  We’ll be releasing No Comebacks, along with 2031, my 6th full-length collection of poetry, at readings here and in Will’s hometown of Portland.  Stay tuned for all the details.  In the meantime, for a sneak peak of No Comebacks and Will Stenberg’s wonderful essay on the “sweet science”, read on to his feature in the latest Parhelion Magazine.  Pre-sales for No Comebacks and 2031 are still open and we could use your help.  Order now and get 2031 at 25% off, while supplies last.  And wait ’til you see our broadsides.  Thanks as always Good Reader.  We couldn’t do this without you.

  1. […] To say I was burned out is an understatement.  I’d self-published my 6th full-length and Will Stenberg‘s too.  I read on both coasts and captained parties throughout the holiday season.  Looking […]
