Spelling the Hours – the lineup!

At long last, here’s the table of contents announcement for the poetry chapbook focusing on forgotten figures in science and technology, Spelling the Hours! This chapbook is one of the bonuses for the forthcoming An Alphabet of Embers anthology.

The chapbook is very cool – different styles, people, time periods – but I think that the most precious thing about Spelling the Hours is the emotional, personal nature of the poets’ explorations of the scientific and scholarly figures therein. I cannot wait to share it with you!
