DUETDUET (vol 1) & call for submissions

e.r. perry and i got bored over break and started a new journal called DUETDUET. it’s poised to be an experiment in happy accidents. publishing equal amounts of work from two separate authors, perhaps strangers, and oriented in opposite directions, the results are curiously perfect hot air balloons.

if you’d be interested in seeing your poems dance, row a tiny boat, and/or make shapes with another’s, send 5-8 pages worth of work either stand-alone, short series or a longer piece to pitymilkpress@gmail.com with ‘DUETDUET’ somewhere in the subject line. here is the link to the first one featuring work from yours truly and e.r. perry. check out the ‘DUETDUET’ tab for more details.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOON POON!

pitymilk is excited to introduce, MOON POON, a syntax-tricky collab that dreams queerly erotic. becoming Georges Bataille’s The Solar Anus’ lunar twin, Micheal Sikkema and Elisabeth Workman give you an alternative history that is very now and always was beneath the surface of the moon. images by Indianapolis based artist Erin K Drew throttle you through this cartoon wet dream.

if your new years resolution is to get trippy and drippy on a pile of dreamy lunar angels, get your copy NOW by checking out the chapbooks tab   ❤
