Well, Zookeepers, we’ve got some very exciting news to share… Origami Zoo has merged with Bull City Press!! While the Zoo will still close at the end of the year, most of our authors, books, and even our founding editor will be joining Bull City as their new home.
Bull City Press currently publishes a small quarterly magazine, Inch, poetry chapbooks through the Frost Place Chapbook Fellowship, and the Bull City Poetry Prize series. By merging, Bull City and Origami Zoo are forming a Super-Press that will print both fiction and poetry chapbooks going forward. You can find most of the Origami Zoo authors, and their books, over on the Bull City website now, including Kate Bernheimer, Lena Bertone, Ben Hoffman, B.J. Hollars, Anne Valente, and Laura van den Berg.
OZP founding editor, Rebecca King, will also be joining the Bull City staff, led by the talented Ross White, to help oversee the expansion of this new fiction branch.
We want to, once again, thank everyone who’s supported Origami Zoo throughout the years and invite you all to follow us over to our new home at Bull City Press! Check out our new digs, the beautiful poetry chapbooks, and the latest Bull City release Memoranda by Michael Martone.
Stay tuned for more news and an interview with Bull City Press Executive Director Ross White.
