I would like to thank everyone who participated and worked with VGP this past year. Thanks to all those who sent in their work and who continued to have faith in what this press is doing and what we stand for. Virgogray Press began as a mission to give voice not only to the voiceless artist, but those without “scholastic honor” or “marketable favor” and as a result incredible things have happened and we’ve experienced poetry rich with the soul.
This year has seen many steps forward in this manner from the release of solo artist’ work via the chapbook to the work of several voices as one in our chapbook anthologies; Virgogray Press is proud to share these independent voices with the world of underground literature and independent publishing, and thankful for the opportunity.
Next year we look forward to working with many more poets and artists and publishing many new works from authors establishing themselves among the net fields and beyond. Virgogray Press is also looking forward to expansion beyond the net-world into the physical with publications being available for purchase in locations around Austin, TX and, with luck, globally, too. We look forward to an active role in the writing community.
2010 will also see updates from Over Your Radar Culture Review as well as a continued stream of poetry and literature from Carcinogenic Poetry. Get involved with Virgogray Press. There are several ways to share your art and your voice with the world and Virgogray is simply one way to do that.
In 2010 look for these titles from Virgogray Press:
Dreaming Quick by Brendan Kirk
Mind Static Vol. 1 by Anne McMillen
Mind Static Vol. 2 by Anne McMillen
Storms at the Edge by Gail Gray
Bliss Hangover by Donna Snyder
Mostly Spinach by Joseph Goosey
and many more!
