Black Ocean and Gramma are pleased to announce that as of January 31, 2019 all titles currently in print under Gramma Press will be distributed in partnership with Black Ocean, and backlist Gramma Press titles will be republished in the future as part of the Black Ocean catalog. We are excited to work together to ensure that Gramma’s authors and books will continue to enjoy long careers as part of a complementary and established independent press, with a catalog that includes Zachary Schomburg, Nathaniel Mackey, and Elisa Gabbert, whose book The Word Pretty was recently reviewed in the NY Times.
As part of the arrangement, Black Ocean will be responsible for Gramma’s author promotions and tours, as well as their books' printing, editorial, and design needs. This will include reprints of all Gramma’s backlist titles as appropriate, with third printings of (v.) and Soap for the Dogs available later this year. Gramma's other projects, including the Reading Series, Monthly Gramma, Weekly Gramma, and their gallery space in Seattle may continue in various future iterations with Black Ocean, but are, at the moment, on a long hiatus.
As part of Black Ocean, Gramma’s titles will continue to be available through Small Press Distribution, at your local independent bookstores, and on Black Ocean's website: blackocean.org. For publicity, events, or other inquiries, contact Carrie Olivia Adams, Poetry Editor and Publicist: firstname.lastname@example.org
Gramma would like to thank everyone who has been a part of their project, and together, we hope that you will continue to follow and support Gramma’s authors at their new home with Black Ocean.
