This is Cassie, the Eggtern, speaking! I had a wonderful time at the Northern Arizona Book Festival last weekend. Firecreek Coffee Company and several other locales hosted several speakers including our 2017/2018 winner Katie Quinnelly! Our own creative nonfiction editor Lawrence Lenhart also helped organized the event. What a great way to support local talent here in Flagstaff!
The 2019/2020 Eggtooth Editions contest has now begun. Contest winners receive publication of the winning manuscript as a physical book; 20 author’s copies of the chapbook; and an invitation to read at the Narrow Chimney Reading Series or the Northern Arizona Book Festival. The Eggtooth Editions Chapbook Contest is open to anyone writing in the English language who has not previously published a full-length book. See: https://eggtootheditions.org/detailed-contest-guidelines/ for more information.

Reading Quasar #6 has been such an enjoyable experience! This is Cassie, the newest addition to Eggtooth Editions (Hey! That rhymed!); I am an Intern at Eggtooth Editions. I’ll be posting here once a week, so keep your eyes wide open.

Eggtooth judges (and friends) had a great time at the AWP conference! Portland was actually sunny…
