the dancing girl press chapbook series

{about the series}

The dancing girl press chapbook series was founded in 2004 to publish and promote the work of women writers and artists. Developed initially as a print extension of the online lit zine wicked alice, the dgp series seeks to publish work that bridges the gaps between schools and poetic techniques--work that's fresh, innovative, and exciting. The press has published over 300 titles by emerging women poets in delectable handmade open-run editions. Our books are available at our website, at select indie bookstores, during Chicago area literary events, and through author readings. Also a purveyor of paper, ephemera, and vintage-inspired arts and crafts, dancing girl press & studio occasionally hosts readings, discussions and workshops related to poetics, publishing, DIY, and book arts.
