2LP Plans to Celebrate National Poetry Month 2016 with 2 New Poetry Collections


National Poetry Month, held every April, is the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture. In keeping with this tradition, 2Leaf Press will be publishing two poetry collections in April 2016, OFF COURSE: ROUNDABOUTS & DEVIATIONS by A. Robert Lee and TARTESSOS AND OTHER CITIES by Claire Millikin. Both Lee and Millikin are seasoned 2LP poets publishing some remarkable works.

In OFF COURSE, Lee interleaves carefully crafted poetry and prose that’s acerbic, volatile and incisive. He disrupts traditional literary boundaries that challenges the status quo. Millikin revisits homelessness in her latest entry, TARTESSOS, by using the sensitivity of poetry to examine American geographies of loss. We encourage you to visit their 2LP pages for more information. Be on the lookout for excerpts, reviews and other surprises leading up to their publication this April 2016.
