Coming up in this week’s Sapling

“[A Blue Hour digital chapbook] has to be purposeful. It has to have a binding agent that’s palpable. It also has to make sense as a digital document…When someone’s holding a book he or she bought or biked to the library for or borrowed from a friend, I think one feels a physical commitment, and will charge ahead, even with skepticism or disinterest; when fingers are on the trackpad, flicking to a new tab is easy to do if something feels ponderous or half-baked or navel-gazy.”—Justin Runge of Blue Hour Press and Parcel, from this week’s feature interview. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: University of Pittsburgh Press! Owl Eye Review! Subito Press!
