The Blue Hour Anthology Volume Two Pre-order, AKA the onus is on us

Image of The Blue Hour Anthology Volume Two

The Blue Hour, which is truly a great press, now has their second Anthology available for pre-order. I’m not saying you should get it cause they were kind enough to include me, but because it is a solid intense moving collection of poetry. And because if we don’t support small presses giving voice to new writers and artists, then who will?

The onus is on us – if you care about art or you make art – you have entered into a contract by which you will support art.

Ms. Moriah LaChapell Shalock posted the following quote on facebook and it deserves repeating:

Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo

-Don Marquis

All the information you could possibly need is here:

The Blue Hour Anthology Volume Two Pre-order.

While you’re thinking about it, check out the first anthology and Better Cigarettes and Other Poems by Phillip Vermass who also runs Misfit’s Miscellany.

Really good stuff.

Don’t let the echo go unheard.

By Ally Malinenko

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.

  1. Read your poem in the PDF tonight, Ally, and it floored me. Astounding stuff. I’m proud to share space in this behemoth of a collection with you and all the other fantastic artists.

    +1 for everything you said about The Blue Hour and of small press in general.
