We are excited to announce the publication of our second chapbook, Boyer Rickel's Tempo Rubato, a suite of prose poems in which "each sentence vibrates with its own internal melody, both a stunning and unforgettable composition in grief and a riveting song in praise of life," writes poet Jason Zuzga.

Kathy Fagan was recently named as a finalist for the prestigious Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award for her wonderful book Sycamore. Three of the poems from that book were published in Under a Warm Green Linden, Issue 2.

Entropy Magazine has named Under a Warm Green Linden one of the best journals and presses of 2017! Thanks to Entropy for the recognition and the good work that they do.

We are delighted to announce the publication of our first chapbook, A Place Where One, by National Poetry Series winner Barbara Cully. We are honored to have worked with Barbara to bring her beautiful and haunting lyric elegy to the world. Its publication marks the beginning of our open reading period for chapbook manuscripts.

Green Linden Press is delighted to continue to expand. Later in 2017, we will publish A Place Where One by Barbara Cully. This will be our first chapbook publication, and we look forward to many, many more!
Barbara Cully is the author of several poetry collections, including Under the Hours, Desire Reclining, and The New Intimacy, which won the National Poetry Series Award. In A Place Where, written in philosophical prose vignettes, deep interiority is her compass as she navigates place, time, and loss. Read an excerpt in Issue 3.
Catalpa seedlings ... one day to be a grove.
Late in 2015 we initiated our green mission, which, in addition to fostering excellence in poetry, has us give a portion of any proceeds to reforestation efforts. With your help, and in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, we planted sixty-four trees this year, primarily to promote hardwood diversity in Iowa, where the majority of land is now used for corn and soy production. This is our young mascot tree, a sterling linden.
