A brief excerpt from the review:
...When the narrator of these poems in this book reveals herself, or should I say allows us a small glimpse, we are left with bald truth and nothing to hide behind.
He also has a few things to say about Tilt Press, and we can't thank him enough for such a generous write up. We are humbled.

Thanks to all who submitted their manuscripts to our first open reading period and to those who have supported the press by purchasing a copy of Tilt, Literary Notes. We are so grateful!
Now, on to the big news – we received so many wonderful manuscripts that Tilt has chosen to publish five chapbooks as opposed to our originally slated three. Those five manuscripts are:
a / long / division by Hanna Andrews
Leaf Weather by Shira Dentz
In the Kingdom of My Familiar by Julie Platt
In the Voice of a Minor Saint by Sarah Sloat
Handle This Bludgeon and Run Me Through by Andrew Terhune
Our short short-list (which really means manuscripts we would have published given the ability) consists of the following manuscripts:
Making Love to the Same Man for Fifteen Years by Leah Browning
A Handbook for Those Who Build Levees by Darla Crist
Took by Jesse Crouse
A Knee for a Life by Jennifer Denrow
The Original Word for Rain by Jeanpaul Ferro
Shapes of Hunger by Carrie Meadows

We will keep updating our blog and website with news of forthcoming chapbook release dates, so please stay tuned!

Our first open reading period is now officially closed. Nicole and I will be making final decisions within the next few weeks. The number of manuscripts along with the quality of work we received exceeded all of our expectations! We are thrilled with the chance to publish such wonderful writing and the final selection process will be tough.
Please stay tuned!

This is a blow to the poetic community as a whole. As if it's not bad enough that we, as poets, are barely recognized by the outside world to begin with. As if it's not bad enough that 99% of us will never make money from our art. But we don't care because we love it. And that's the point. We love poetry. To have people within this community abuse our work and take advantage of our dreams is despicable.
It is over for Cider Press.

- We are currently working on fixing a few snags on the Tilt website so that all browsers are able to properly process our graphics and text boxes.
- Anyone still waiting for their copy of Tilt, Literary Notes: we will be sending out those chaps this week. We originally planned on waiting until our Broadside was complete, but have decided to send out the chap without it.
- Everyone who received a copy of Tilt, Literary Notes will be receiving a Broadside in the mail in a few weeks. Look out for it!
- Tilt has already sent out first round rejection letters for our current open reading period.
