CityLit Press announces the publication of its latest two titles--Clash by Night
and Oblige the Light
--both wonderfully engaging explorations into the realms of poetry.
First in the Lo-fi Poetry Series, Clash by Night
takes inspiration from The Clash's seminal album 1979 album, London Calling
. Forty poets contributed to the volume covering each of 19 tracks plus "Liner Notes" sections of poems that reflect on the power of the album as a whole. The anthology is edited by Gerry LaFemina, professor and director of the creative writing center at Frostburg State University, and Gregg Wilhelm, founder and director of CityLit Project.Oblige the Light
, by Danuta E. Kosk-Kosicka, received the fifth annual Harriss Poetry Prize. Selected by judge Michael Salcman, the chapbook mixes "astonishing metaphors and precise description of natural forces and historical events results in an atmospheric Magical Realism that borders on the Surrealistic."More information on both books can be found here on this web site under CityLit Press.
