Coming up in this week's Sapling

“We want authors who aren’t afraid to expand the landscape of their books. Best are obsessive-types with notebooks blackened with crazed rants, absurdly detailed doodles. We use that stuff. If we’re going to fulfill our mission of breaking the boundaries of what a book can be, we need big voice, tumbling ideas, and a sprawling narrative world.”–Elizabeth Koch, Publisher of Black Balloon Publishing, from this week’s feature. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Columbia: A Joural of Literature and Art! BOOTH! Soft Skull Press!
