Sit Stay

"Sit. Stay. : vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series" by  A. L. D Chalom

SIT. STAY (vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series) is "a poetry chapbook for anyone who is a person and not a template." The printpoetics chapbook series offers thought provoking material condensed into tiny reads in a style far less delicate than what we are used to seeing in A.L.D. Chalom's previous work (see "ONE"- a poetry collection). The different volumes dissect "hot-potato" subjects such as social injustice, discrimination, abuse, stereotypes, sexuality, gender, LGBTQ issues, women's rights, feminism, racism, bullying, loss, drug use and abuse ... the list is endless and the series is an ongoing project, constantly adding volumes to the series. The chapbooks vary in style; some including poetry, some prose, some a mix. Trigger warning for books in this series: abuse, rape, non-censored language.
