Updates! News! Etc.!

Much has occurred since we abandoned this blog like a mine shaft last year. Our chapbook, Something Really Wonderful, came out from dancing girl press in November; look for it wherever rare books and collector's items are sold. Mark Wallace had nice things to say about it, like "The linguistic energy and, really, virtuosity, can be stunning."

And last month, our full-length collection, That Tiny Insane Voluptuousness, was released from Otoliths. You can read poems from this collection in Boston Review, Caketrain, Coconut, The Concher, Dusie, Elimae, Foursquare, MiPOesias, Noo, Opium, Otoliths, Past Simple, Sawbuck, and 21 Stars Review.

Michael Gushue interviewed us for the VRZHU Press blog.

Jesse Glass wrote on the Ahadada blog that if our poems were set to music a la Japanse girl band Puffy, it would "rocket these two to cult status on the thinking woman's circuit."

Samuel Wharton called this book "really awesome, a perfect mix of spry humor, mind-curdling verbal gymnastics, & dead-on seriousishness."

Our poems were featured on Sharkforum.

Amy Kucharik wrote on Facebook: "I hate most poets, but I make an exception for Elisa Gabbert. The unexpected, playful turns in these poems are always original, never pretentious, and kind of make you wonder what Elisa/Kathy have been up to that inspired them." Thanks for not hating, Amy K.

We've got new work forthcoming in Chicago-based Make Magazine and MoonLit. Stay tuned for more.
