New Book, Open Reading Period - Action Books

Action Books has a new Book out!

The Morning News Is Exciting
By Don Mee Choi
ISBN: 9780979975561
"Cameraman, run to my twin twin zone. A girl's exile excels beyond excess. Essence excels exile. Something happens to the wanted girl. Nothing happens to the unwanted girl. The morning news is exciting." A debut volume from poet, translator, artist and activist Don Mee Choi. Here translation, aberration, mobility and movement corrupt the would-be verities of the world's hegemonic codes. "Choi translates feminist politics into an experimental poetry that demilitarizes, deconstructs, and decolonizes any master narrative."--Craig Santos Perez.

Read a sample: "A Journey From Neo-Colony To Colony."

ALSO! Action Books will hold an open reading for books. Here is the info, I will soon send around on our various lists:

Action Books will be holding an open reading period June 1-July 15. We will consider book-length manuscripts of poetry, drama, fiction, criticism or some version of these for publication. Translations are welcome.

Directions: Please send the manuscript as an attachment to Please write “Open Reading Submission” and your name in the subject header. Feel free to include a short bio and/or a short description of your book if you think this would be useful.
We look forward to reading your manuscripts.

Y'all should make a rule banning former students from submitting. With Alan Cordle not around, we must police ourselves.
