seven syrians - war accounts by syrian refugees by diego cupolo
"A voice is missing from the international debate on the Syrian War. Throughout the conflict, world leaders have focused discussions on chemical weapons and radical fundamentalists while the Syrian people, civilians and refugees remain effectively absent from the conversation. Yet, as the war continues without foreseeable end, the simple truth is Syrians are dying and whether through bombs or sarin gas, the largest portion of the casualties are civilian.”
8 x 8. 86 pages, ISBN 978-1-926716-26-8. $18.88 (*$2 of your purchase will go directly to the "A HEART FOR SYRIA" a charity organization supplying humanitarian aid to Syrians displaced by the ongoing war.

Announcing CLAUDIA SEREA's "A Dirt Road Hangs From the Sky"

Written in unsparing, haunting detail, Claudia Serea’s unforgettable A Dirt Road Hangs From the Sky brings to life the horrors of the brutal communist repression in her native Romania in the second part of the 20th century – the prisons, the torture, the barbarous inhumanity— preserving in memory a time that should never be forgotten. She writes: “Tell me, grandma, everything you know / so I can be your mouth when you are gone.” The grief is lasting; memory must serve as justice.
— Charles Rammelkamp, editor of The Potomac Review, author of Fusen Bakudan
Claudia Serea's "A Dirt Road Hangs from the Sky" coming soon.
Look for it this December.

AS WE REFER TO OUR BODIES
Our bodies, our individual and collective bodies, and the seperate bodies that together combine to make
“Darren is a dangerous dreamer, concocting love poems to his home state, and pastorals to his true love. But there’s always something more beneath the surface: sex and violence, villainy, mutilation, uneasy redemption and troubled ecstasy. These poems are pins pressed deep in the disfigured heart of America. They work a dark magicon the reader — they’re unsettling in necessary ways.” — Christopher Michel
"As you read through the poems of Darren C. Demaree, his prescient voice seems to grow in volume, each story clambering for more attention than the last. Yet, it isn't that he is screaming from atop the mountain, but that everybody around has infinitely hushed to hear this whispering storyteller who speaks of little moments, glorious moments, moments "where the smooth sheet / of leaves & salt / will sugar us / into the un-lonely air"...as if each of us, is his guiding star, his sky, his Emily." - Mr. & Mrs. Garbanzo (Garbanzo Literary Journal)
