I am writing to ask for your support for Station Hill of Barrytown and hope that you will consider including our press in your year-end giving plans.
Founded by George and Susan Quasha in 1977, Station Hill has published over 250 books, thanks in part to the generosity of our donors. We are asking for your help to fund current and future projects. All donations to Station Hill, the literary publishing project of the Institute for Publishing Arts, Inc., a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, are tax deductible.
Our recent books have included Corona: Selected Poems of Paul Celan, translated by Susan H. Gillespie, as well as titles by Peter Lamborn Wilson, Robert Kelly, and Jerome Rothenberg. In 2015 we will be publishing eight books, some of which will be considered historically significant publications, including Eating The Colors Of A Lineup Of Words, an omnibus collection of Bernadette Mayer’s influential yet long out-of-print first books, and the distinguished poet and art critic Carter Ratcliff’s extraordinary first novel, Tequila Mockingbird. And we are currently in preliminary production on Clark Coolidge’s Selected Poems: 1962-1985, edited by Larry Fagin, slated for fall publication.
These and other books are part of our effort to maintain Station Hill Press as one of a handful of long-surviving independent publishers serving extraordinary innovative writers. From the start its mission has been to challenge and evolve conceptions of human possibility through the language arts. Along the way we have supported little known as well as major international writers not yet established here, such as the great French writer Maurice Blanchot, whom Station Hill introduced to the American trade in 1978 with Death Sentence (trans. Lydia Davis), eventually publishing eight others in the years to follow.
