Vagabond Press invites you to celebrate
the launch of the 'deciBels series'
in Sydney & Melbourne

New state-of-the-art poetry by Anselm Berrigan, Don Mee Choi
Stephanie Christie, Toby Fitch, Angela Gardner, Jaimie Gusman
Rachel Loden, Susan M. Schultz, Ann Vickery & Maged Zaher

Series edited by Pam Brown
& designed by Chris Edwards.

With the completion of the iconic Rare Objects series in 2014, the deciBels series was established to open the Vagabond list to fresh poetry & new forms for the years to come. Over the next few years, Vagabond Press will collaborate with guest editors to bring together sets of ten works. Form & genre are open & up to the editor, as is the design & format. Transnational, working across styles & categories, the deciBels is an experiment in publishing, aimed at taking the press & its readers off on new vectors. One editor, ten contributors, wide open space.

Today I read Citizen, a very powerful, succinct book by Claudia Rankine - it tells exactly what it is like to be a black citizen in the USA and is important everywhere for those concerned about racism - it is also, in the face of sorrowful everyday realities, a work of art. (It's published by Graywolf Press)
