under the small lights } awp denver
announced officially by the university of miami press, john cotter's short novel under the small lights will be published this may.
under the small lights will be of especial interest to those familiar with poet charles jodoin, whose work you likely read in the kate schapira edited leopard print chapbook anthology, as he makes an appearance in the novel as a character named... charles jodoin. (jodoin also makes a brief, lecherous appearance in adam golaski's historical essay "the dairy barn.")
john will embark on a national book tour, beginning at the university in ohio; flim forum will post dates so you may begin work on your cotter tour tee, which will be retro cool when your children start college.
on a far less interesting note, flim forum press will share a table with open letters monthly at the upcoming awp conference in denver this april. flim will debut its new title, soon to be officially announced; brandon shimoda's book and both flim anthologies will be available, along with a plethora of side projects, including new genre. open letters monthly will have on hand a print anthology that brings together twelve of their best essays.
