Frog Mantra continues global offerings
Is it possible to keep literature alive and affordable? Absolutely! Just ask Katerina Stoykova-Klemer, senior editor and founder of Accents Publishing. In its three years of operation the independent press has published more than twenty chapbooks and full-length poetry collections, a pace it intends to continue. According to Katerina, the original mission of the press was “to publish a book every month or two.” She adds, “Our mission is to promote brilliant voices in an affordable publication format, and to foster an exchange of literature among different world cultures and languages.”
A native of Bulgaria who immigrated to America in 1995, Katerian operates her publishing press out of her Lexington, Kentucky home. Each of the poetry chapbooks produced by Accents is made by hand and sell for $5 or (for full-length books) $12.
