Forthcoming in 2016: Empire Wasted by Becca Klaver

We couldn't be more excited to announce that Becca Klaver's second poetry collection, Empire Wasted, is forthcoming from Bloof Books! Look for it in fall 2016.

In the meantime, you can read a few of the poems from the book in BOUND: The First Array, our chapbook annual, or in the e-version of Becca's sold-out chapbook, Nonstop Pop!

Empire Wasted joins already-scheduled new books and chapbooks by Jennifer L. Knox, Sharon Mesmer, Khadijah Queen, Ginger Ko, Alyssa Lynee, Nikki Wallschlaeger, and Catie Rosemurgy in our positively thrilling (and still in-progress) 2015–2016 season catalog. We're bouncing like SuperBalls just imagining that future.
