Diane Wald

faustinetta, gegenschein, trapunto by Diane Wald faustinetta, gegenschein, trapunto by Diane Wald
Červená Barva Press, 2008

These three poems somehow asked to be together. They are full of alive and dead people, full of genuine and created personalities, full of composite desires and fears and mockeries. They popped up out of the love of words, and the word-secrets we all hold dear. The title words brought me buckets of pleasure, and I wanted to celebrate and embellish them. One of them I made up, one of them I learned, one of them I'd forgotten I knew. I think all three are united in mystery, begging for me to believe them.

Robert Warden

Beyond the Straits by Marine Robert Warden
Presa :S: Press, 1980, 2011

Warden is deeply romantic, always searching for meaning. At the same time, he is a complete realist. This a rare poetic achievemnet. It's all here, the compassion and the music, ready to engage a new audience.

"His (Warden's) imagery is deep and mystical... What he conveys is that we really can't figure out the meaning of the present without a simultaneous awe of events from the movement of history. But nature's beauty remains omnipresent."
—Barbara Bialick

Brothers by Eric Wasserman
Červená Barva Press, 2008

Take Faulkner's dicturn that "the past is never dead, it's not even past" and transpose it to late Forties L.A. In the grand tradition of John Gregory Dunne's True Confessions, Wasserman's taut little tale finds a mismatched pair of brothers clashing. explosively, at the dawn of the Blacklist era.
-Wesley Strick, screenwriter and author of Out There in the Dark

Joe Weil

The Pursuit of Happiness New and Selected Poems from Elizabeth, New Jersey by Joe Weil The Pursuit of Happiness
New and Selected Poems from Elizabeth, New Jersey
by Joe Weil

Excerpt from the back of the book
There's beauty everywhere, we know that. But no one perceives it all. It's easy to be impressed with towering mountain ranges, but Joe's knocked out over two old women gabbing over a broken picket fence, or his Uncle Pete not killing a deer after he thought he'd wanted to all his life, or riding home in a Yellow Cab and hanging out in the cool basement with the washing machine rocking on the uneven floor ("a convulsed and bulky tap dancer") or the Cuban lady "who claims to be the first cousin of Art Linkletter twice removed." But Joe's not only about loving "little people" and "humble" things…

Kris Weinrich

Between Streetlights and Stars by Kris Weinrich Between Streetlights and Stars
by Kris Weinrich, 2012

Kris Weinrich graduated from Emerson College in 2002 with a BA in Audio Engineering and a minor in literature. He has been a regular at open mics in Southeastern Massachusetts and is one of the poetry workshop facilitators for the Brockton Public Library Poetry Series.


"Kris Weinrich's poems are in the voice of the guy who knows that no good deed goes unpunished, but won't let it stop him from trying. It's true in love as the women in the poems are moving away, imagined, unapproachable, even for sale, yet he is in there swinging away. It's true out in the world of the skyline, subway, street illuminated by either streetlight or stars, both mocking him but not discouraging him. Weinrich earns our attention, sympathy and respect through crackling language. "Your bones beckon heat,/raging to ride trolleys over cracked concrete/into the brass blare of jazz nights/down streets humming park bench blues". Weinrich doesn't waste words or our time. Every line is rich in sound and meaning and emotion. That's a pretty good definition of rock and roll, and these poems rock."
—David R. Surette, author of The Immaculate Conception Mothers' Club

Anthony Russell White

Ferrovie by Anthony Russell White
Červená Barva Press, 2007

The 2006 Červená Barva Press Chapbook Poetry Prize Winner

Ferrovie is Italian for trains, and seemed appropriate for a series of poems about strange encounters on Italian trains. I was introduced to the prose poem in 1993 by Robert Bly at a workshop afloat in Alaska, and have been writing them ever since. Some poems just seem to want to be in that form. Some of these ten came from my dreams, a few from actual events, the remainder from pure unleashed imagination.

Success of the Seed Plants by Leslie Williams Success of the Seed Plants by Leslie Williams
Bellday Books, 2010

"A reader never knows what is coming next in the poems of Success of the Seed Plants—they move as one would cross a stream, by adroitly leaping from rock to rock. The mood here therefore feels risky, as the narrator gambles against falling. I found her mental agility exhilarating."
—Lucia Perillo, final judge, 2010 Bellday Prize competition

Ian Randall Wilson

Out Of The Arcadian Ghetto Out Of The Arcadian Ghetto
A Fiction Chapbook by Ian Randall Wilson
Červená Barva Press, 2007

Ian Randall Wilson is the author of Hunger and Other Stories (Hollyridge Press, 2000), and the poetry chapbook Theme of the Parabola (Hollyridge Press, 2005). His work has appeared in many journals including the North American Review, the Mid-American Review and The Gettysburg Review. He is an executive at Columbia-TriStar Marketing Group, and on the fiction faculty at the UCLA Extension.

Out of the Arcadian Ghetto is a work of great imagination. It features two previously published stories. In "He Was Known For His Nose," a specialist employed by a reclusive millionaire selects female companionship for his master by the women's smell. When his nose fails, disaster ensues. In "The Three Bears: A Retelling," this classic fairytale is reconceived as a contemporary commentary on race relations between homo sapiens and Ursus arctos.

Anne Harding Woodworth

Herding by Anne Harding Woodworth Herding by Anne Harding Woodworth
Červená Barva Press, 2014

Anne Harding Woodworth is the author of five books of poetry and three chapbooks. She lived on a farm in New York State during much of her childhood, where her fondness for cows began. It has stayed with her in spite of living in New York City; Detroit; Athens, Greece; and Frankfurt, Germany. She now divides her time between a cabin in the mountains of Western North Carolina and a home in Washington, D.C., where she is a member of the Poetry Board at the Folger Shakespeare Library. (www.annehardingwoodworth.com)


In Herding, cows rush in where angels fear to tread, as Anne Harding Woodworth finds the human in the cow and the cow in the human. Cows serve as figurative and literal witness here, be they standing by during a speaker's contemplative walk through a country morning or dressing up as a contest winner's best man, "forced to masquerade / as a bull masquerading as a best man // wearing a tailor-made bovine tuxedo." Woodworth's poems are funny and even ridiculous at times, but don't be fooled into thinking this is light verse. Here, we find the essential: our place on and of the earth, and in the immediate and more general human relationships that make up our personal herd.
—Ruth Foley, Managing Editor of Cider Press Review and author of Dear Turquoise

Up From The Root Cellar by Anne Harding Woodworth
Červená Barva Press, 2008

If the root cellar connotes dark and damp, it also promises nourishment-and this book serves up a startling buffet. Whether imagining herself into a grave, a slaughterhouse, or a rose that holds a family memory, Anne Harding Woodworth is attentive to how "secrets rise to the surface." Her range of subject matter is startling-from famine to termites to dowsing for bodies-and she deftly works a root vegetable into nearly every poem, including one about the invention of the potato chip and another that turns the peeling of an Idaho into a sexy striptease. Up from the Root Cellar is rich with music, and brings a satisfying harvest of buried and strewn things to light.
Ellen Doré Watson, author of This Sharpening

In Up from the Root Cellar, Anne Harding Woodworth delights us with a quick and unblinking look to the cold, soupy, death-in-life world that roots our body's generation, and our ladders of art. Her poems feel through near-frozen "rhizomes / tightly wadded leaves," and wan cyclopean russet potatoes, "wide-eyed, looking for a way out," in order redefine the human form, the ways that the body seeks its "light-time" even as it must bow to physical limits, "dry-weighted, wet-weighted, scoped on dials, squeezed into ratio." Woodworth's instincts for the contrarian, and messy-microbial sources for human stories put her alongside the garden-shed bio-poetries of Roethke and Marianne Moore. Yet her sudden turns and wacky humor find their own force and presence.
David Gewanter, author of The Sleep of Reason

One of the many pleasures of poetry is that of coming into the company of an interesting mind. In Up from the Root Cellar, Anne Harding Woodworth uses her central metaphor to plumb the mysteries of preservation and renewal in ways that are fresh and surprising. Her tender, gently subversive poems, with their rich wordplay and mischievous imagery, succeed in bringing up from the darkness of the root cellar insights that delight and enlighten.
Jean Nordhaus, author of Innocence

Grzegorz Wróblewski

Let's Go Back To The Mainland by Grzegorz Wróblewski Let's Go Back To The Mainland
by Grzegorz Wróblewski
Translated from the Polish by Agnieszka Pokojska
Červená Barva Press, 2014

Grzegorz Wróblewski, born in 1962 in Gdansk and raised in Warsaw, has been living in Copenhagen since 1985. He has published ten volumes of poetry and three collections of short prose pieces in Poland; three books of poetry, a book of poetic prose and an experimental novel (translations) in Denmark; and a book of selected poems in Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as a selection of plays. His work has been translated into fifteen languages. His recent book of prose poems, Kopenhaga, was published by Zephyr Press, 2013.


Between classical lyricism and central European surrealism, between the punk aesthetic of Mark E Smith and the existentialism of Camus, between the miniatures of Joseph Cornell and the stalker of Tarkovsky, between painting, plays, poetry, performance art, and the memoir, between Poland and Denmark and the milky way, Grzegorz Wróblewski is on the mainland. His work is the most distinct and diverse coming out out of the so-called "bruLion generation" always moving into the major leagues of this universe and perhaps others. If we don't become extinct as a species in the near future, Wroblewski will go down as one of our greatest writers, artists, and thinkers.
