Zone 3 Press expanded its mission in 2010 with the launch of the Zone 3 Press Chapbook Series. The series publishes the work of contemporary American poets in beautifully designed handmade books. Produced in-house by Zone 3 interns and APSU art students, the chapbooks feature handmade paper covers that are hand sewn and letterpress printed on APSU's Goldsmith Press. Zone 3's collaboration with the APSU Department of Art and Design fosters the learning process among creative writing students and student artists. We are especially grateful to Dr. Cindy Marsh, director of the Goldsmith Smith Press and Rare Type collection, for her support of the series.
The first chapbook in the series is Norman Dubie's The Fallen Bird of the Fields. The next chapbook will feature poems by Mary Oliver. Poems for the series are solicited by the editors.
