All Lit Up Press Picks for the Holidays: Caitlin Press
Caitlin Press (and its imprint for lesbian writing, Dagger Editions) publish fiction, non-fiction, and poetry out on the coast of BC. Today the press shares three excellent Press Picks: a quintet of linked stories about queer community, a strange and wonderful speculative story collection, and an experimental poetry collection (perfect for those who say they “don’t like poetry”).
with/holding by Chantal Gibson
“We encourage everyone to read this book, even if they don’t consider themselves to be a ‘poetry reader.’ It combines poetry with social critique and plays with form in an incredibly unique way. Have you ever seen a poem shaped like a Shopify sales page? With text shaped like add to cart buttons? You’re going to want to click buy on this one.”

This Unlikely Soil by Andrea Routley
“Andrea Routley has an uncanny ability to portray uncomfortable social interactions and problematic relationships. If you like a book that can make you feel visceral discomfort (in the best possible way) while questioning why people do the things they do, you’re going to want to read this. “
Find This Unlikely Soil here on All Lit Up or use the Shop Local button to purchase from your local indie bookstore.
Music from a Strange Planet by Barbara Black
“A biogenetically-altered couple. The ruins of a dystopian city. Insects. Lots of insects. What can we say? This book is delightfully strange, remarkably entertaining, and we guarantee that you’ve never read anything quite like it. “
