Deer Bear Wolf Press is proud to announce its first chapbook, There Appeared A Sadness by Winston Blake Wheeler Ward. Author Winston Blake Wheeler Ward has compiled a collection of three short sagas of immense weight in There Appeared a Sadness. The common threads of loneliness, abandonment and self-doubt are woven into each story, elevating them to a symbiotic and symphonic portrayal of life’s deepest longings for companionship, tenderness and acceptance. Individually, the narratives are vastly set-from outer space, to the ocean, into the blindness of the human heart. There Appeared A Sadness will be released Wednesday, October 29 at MINT Gallery. The release will feature readings by John Carroll, Amy Stufflebeam, Davy Minor and Winston Blake Wheeler Ward. RSVP to There Appeared A Sadness Release Party.

Deer Bear Wolf is partnering up with sQuish, Make Blackout Poetry, Bang! Arts, Common Ground, and Vouched to bring a new festival to an abandoned motel. Amongst the ruins of a derelict motel site in the Lakewood community of Atlanta, Urban Sprout Farms has created a sanctuary for growing fresh produce. On November 15th, a group of champions for the Atlanta arts community are getting together to present a day of music, literature and art to raise awareness for this creative repurposing of land that was once laying to waste.
Entry to the festival is FREE with RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/phoenix-festival-tickets-13580805555
