 Turn Every Page documentary

Writer and editor friends. 

This is a fine study of the integrated roles of 

author and editor and publisher.

The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb

It proves both inspiring and insightful. 

You may have to rent it, but if you're a serious writer, it's worth it.

The Price of a Small Hot Fire

Congratulations to Cleveland poet E.F. Schraeder, whose first full-length poetry collection, The Price of a Small Hot Fire, is being released this summer by Raw Dog Screaming Press.

A careful study on estrangement and loss, The Price of a Small Hot Fire excavates the archetypal horrors of monstrous motherhood, from abandonment and unsteady reconciliation to the grave. Experimental and intimate, E.F. Schraeder’s collection gives voice to a semi-autobiographical examination of a griefscape from a queer lens.

Advance praise: “E.F. Schraeder’s wonderful collection The Price of a Small Hot Fire is a gleaming poetic knife: strong, sharp, and heart-carving.”     – Lucy A. Snyder, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Exposed Nerves “Schraeder writes with teeth sharpened by decades of grit and despair; vicious and morose in equal measure.”
     – Anton Cancre, author of This Story Doesn’t End the Way We Want All the Time

Timothy Russell

 Here, friends, are two fine Ohio poets 
whose work we are proud to share.
Tim passed away in Sept. 2021 and this is his collected poems
with photos, timeline, remembrance by wife Jodi,
and a fine introduction by Marc Harshman.
David J. Adams is very much with us and for us.
This is his New and Selected.
Both are at our web site and up on Amazon.

Join us in Sandusky for the book launch.


The poet doesn't invent. He listens. ~Jean Cocteau
