Authors, Entrepreneurs, and other Creative Individuals Pursuing Their Dreams
I thought this press might be a resource for some of you literary writers and poets. And, of course, I wanted you to know about this success. Feel free to use the release as a template for a basic media release, too. (-:
Los Angeles, CA--Editors of Manzanita Press announced that Carolyn Howard-Johnson's Poem "Big Screen Snack" was selected from hundreds of entries from across the nation for publication in their Wine, Cheese and Chocolate: A Taste of Literary Elegance.
Wine, Cheese and Chocolate will be a full-color, glossy-paged collection. A run of 8,000 are being printed for distribution across the US in major wineries, eateries, and establishments that delight in artistic projects. Editor Monika Rose notes, "It’s going to be a fantastic, gorgeous, almost edible anthology. Very chic!"
Howard-Johnson’s poetry has appeared in literary journals like the Mochila Review, Banyan Review, Pear Noir, Voices Israel, and Poetic Voices. One of her poems won a reader award at The Pedestal Magazine.
Howard-Johnson has studied at UCLA with Suzanne Lummis, editor of Speechless the Magazine (http://www.speechlessthemagazine.org/) where her chapbook Tracings, winner of Military Writers Society of America’s Award of Excellence and published by Finishing Line Press, was featured in 2005.
The poet's literary novel, This Is the Place, has won eight awards. Her book of creative nonfiction has won three. She is developing a new Celebration Series of poetry chapbooks with Magdalena Ball.
