Kenning Editions’ new nonfiction series, 2015-2016
Ordinance, a critical series, issues nonfiction writing in the areas of contemporary poetics, philosophy, politics, and technology. Ordinance as in coordination, ordinal points, and incendiary potential. Ordinance offers in chapbook form essays and other texts with greater stamina than yesterday’s feed. They will also be available to read on screen.
Beginning in June, Kenning Editions will publish a new chapbook in the series every couple of months. These are slender, handmade, perfectbound books. The first set features work by Julietta Cheung (on global product culture as enunciation), Daniel Borzutsky (on translation and Chicago School economics), Andrew Durbin (on Donna Summer), and Daniel Spangler (on operating systems, God, and Deleuze). 2016 begins with Cassandra Troyan (on social reproduction, emotional labor, sex work, & gendered violence). The series will carry on from there and updates will be posted to Kenningeditions.com and elsewhere.
Although you may purchase individual titles at $7.00 each, you may subscribe to the series for a mere $35.00 and receive them all as they are printed. International orders add a $15.00 shipping fee.
Meanwhile, Hannah Weiner has had her first museum show, and Trisha Low has been busy this spring castigating the culture (for its own benefit–see what I mean here). And if you plan to be in Chicago next winter, you can look forward to attending a poets theater festival we are coordinating with the good citizens at Sector 2337. To help everyone prepare, the Weiner, Low, and Kenning Anthology of Poets Theater books are on sale for the next week or so.
We have more planned, but nothing we’re ready to confide just now. Stay tuned and help spread the word.
