About Death to the Bullshit Artists of South Texas
A collection of ten punk rock fairy-tales about artists and misfits trying to make noise and live forever in the unforgiving landscape of the Rio Grande Valley.
Death to the Bullshit Artists of South Texas is a psychedelic romp through the Rio Grande Valley music scene. This collection of 10 punk rock fairy-tales offers a prismatic view of a subculture so rich that if it knew its own worth, it just might revolt against itself. This is the book you wish you had as a teenager, headphones on, waiting at a bus stop for a ride to the record store.
About Threshold by Julie Howd (Spring 2020 Winner)
Julie Howd's poems reach backward and forward in time simultaneously, breathing life into the language of antiquity, while fearlessly exploring of the issues that flood our present-day consciousness. This is deeply empathetic work; poetry in tune with the threats facing our natural world, our sanity, our joy and our sacred communal birthright to create art. As Taisaia Kitaiskaia says in the introduction: "Because of Threshold, poetry is evergreening right now, heady with hope, creeping with delight."
