I have two exciting announcements to share!
First, i am beyond honored to be a part of Yellow Arrow Publishing’s Literary Night here in Baltimore on August 2nd! It’s part of the Highlandtown First Friday Art Walk and will feature a ton of amazing writers, readers, and presses.
Akinoga will be at Snake Hill, a hip, laid-back watering hole with a sausage-centric menu, a cool microbrew list, and craft cocktails, from 5 until 9, so i hope y’all come by and see me/get some good dang food and drinks.
Second, i am SUPER EXCITED to announce that akinoga press will be publishing the first volume of Jack Slocomb’s debut poetry collection, Native Tongue, this October, with volume two following next spring!
His poetry is wonderful and intimate, and i’m so happy i can make a home for it. Just like all of the books i’ve published so far with akinoga, working with Native Tongue has resulted in so many interesting firsts for the press. It’s thrilling to know that despite all the ground i’ve already covered, there’s still so much more out there to learn and discover.
Buuuuut i’ll save that for the Spotlight i’ll be making for the book soon!
Hope to see y’all August 2nd!
