A Sad Day at Coffee House Press

An unfortunate loss has recently occurred in the literary community. Allan Kornblum, the founding publisher of Coffee House Press, passed away on November 23rd. In honor of his generous legacy, the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses is dedicating an entire issue of their newsletter, Fresh Pressed, to remembering his work. Because CLMP is sending out their newsletter first thing next week, they ask that contributions (a paragraph or a few lines) be sent in by Sunday night to info@clmp.org with the subject line “Allan.”

Again, we are sorry for the loss of those close with Allan. We know his influence will live on.
