If you would like to order a copy of Inside Bone There’s Always Marrow, please visit Maverick Duck Press.

The cost of the chapbook is only $5.00!

If you would like a signed copy, I will be giving away 10 free signed copies to the first ten people who request one. However, there is a caveat – in order to receive your free signed copy, I ask that you order one copy of Inside Bone There’s Always Marrow from Maverick Duck Press and have it sent to someone you know (or don’t know!). This helps support the small print press that is Maverick Duck and I think it’s a good way to spread the poetry love by buying someone a poetry book.

If you are interested in receiving a free signed copy for yourself, please email me at rachelmallino@gmail.com.

Of Note:

I have three poems in the new issue of Hobble Creek Review. I’m in good company with Sarah Sloat, Matthew Hittinger, Nanette Rayman Rivera, Collin Kelley, Nic Sebastian and quite a few others. This is the Baker’s Dozen Issue and you should ch-ch-check it out.

Slant has released its 5th dysfunctional batch featuring Jay Robinson. And if you missed the 4th batch with Nanette Rayman Rivera, here it is.

Cooper Dillon is an independent poetry press founded on promoting and maintaining the values which make poetry a high art.  Through the publication and distribution of full-length collections and chapbooks, our intention is to nurture the poet and reader who finds joy in aesthetic, beauty, honesty and intimacy.

The reading period for full-length poetry manuscripts is now open.

As a new independent literary press devoted exclusively to poetry we’re excited to consider all types of work, and are open to submissions, both full-length as well as chapbook manuscripts.  We hold contests for both, but are happy to consider collections outside of the contests, if you can submit within the following guidelines:

Be sure your name and contact information is on the cover page of the document.

PDFs are the preferred format (and can be created through the “print” options in most word processing programs).

Please have any cover letter or bio associated with the submission in the body of the email.

All manuscripts should have a table of contents, page numbers, and acknowledgments.

Please note that we are only interested in manuscripts of poetry.  Manuscripts of fiction, nonfiction, essay, biography, etc. will not be replied to.

All submission can be emailed to us at <editors(at)cooperdillon.com> (replace (at) with @)

In the subject line of the email, please use the following format: “Submission by [ your name].”

All manuscripts will be considered carefully and replied to in a reasonable amount of time.  If it’s been more than a month, feel free to send an email.

30 Day Shred

Here is a video of Jillian Michaels from “The Biggest Loser” – she’s out and out brutal. The workout I do everyday is a Jillian Michaels’  DVD workout called The 30 Day Shred. It’s only a 20 minute workout but you feel like you’re going to die the entire time. When I finish my workout, I can barely walk, breathe or think for, at least, an hour. I’m on day 11 and I swear, it has not gotten ANY easier. I’m able to do more push ups than when I first started and for most exercises, I follow the “advanced” workout as opposed to the “modified” but because I smoke, the cardio absolutely kills me.

And here’s a clip from the actual 30 Day Shred DVD.
