I'm excited to announce that I'm the new Special Projects Coordinator for Toadlily Press. Toadlily Press is different from other poetry presses in that they publish authors in a 4-in-1 format: four poets in one handsome, perfect-bound book. I'm thrilled to be a part of it all.
My first task is to send out copies of the new book, Mend & Hone, for review. The book is a collection in four parts by poets Janlori Goldman, Dawn Gorman, Elizabeth Howort, and Leslie LaChance.
If you review poetry books, send me an email (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com) with your mailing address and affiliation for a review copy of the book.

JANLORI GOLDMAN teaches at Columbia University in the ﬁelds of human rights, public health and narrative medicine. Her ﬁrst manuscript was a ﬁnalist for the Alice James Kinereth Gensler Award, the Philip Levine Prize for Poetry and Crab Orchard Press’s Open Competition. Janlori holds an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College and volunteers as a writing mentor at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She lives in Accord, NY.
DAWN GORMAN was born in the market town of Chesterﬁeld in Derbyshire, England where, at the heels of her ornithologist father, she learned to love the natural world with a passion that now spills freely into her poetry. She refers to nature as her “muse, teacher and healer,” and the creative process as the way she makes sense of the world. She has two grown children and is the editor of an international maritime magazine.
ELIZABETH HOWORT has taught poetry at the elementary, high school and college level. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in the Seneca Review, L Magazine, The Round, Storyscape, the Best American Poetry blog and elsewhere. “Turning the Forest Fertile” is her ﬁrst chapbook.
LESLIE LACHANCE edits and publishes Mixitini Matrix: A Journal of Creative Collaboration. Her poems have appeared in JMWW, Sundress.net’s Best of the Net, Apple Valley Review, The Greensboro Review, Juked, The Birmingham Poetry Review, the anthology A Slant of Light: Contemporary Women Writers of the Hudson Valley, and elsewhere. Born and raised in upstate New York, Leslie currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
