This is a special thanks to Robbie Wendenborn (MFA Poetry 2011) and Anna Pattison (MFA Fiction 2012), interns for Apostrophe Books, an associated (though not affiliated) press (along with Noemi Books) of the NMSU creative writing program.
This semester Apostrophe Books has made several important strides forward that would not have happened if not for the help we received from Robbie and Anna. Five months ago, Apostrophe Books did not have a Facebook page, had not yet incorporated as a Limited Partnership in the state of New Mexico, did not have an Employer Identification Number, did not have a business license, did not have a checking account, and had not yet implemented a new submission policy (starting this week!). Now we have all of this set up. Anna and Robbie each played contributing roles in making these improvements possible. In addition, both contributed to the reading and editing of our next title, and Robbie worked at the AWP bookfair table selling books and took promotional pictures of our massively successful reading event at the Plus Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
Thanks again Robbie and Anna!
And during the summer, Apostrophe Books is looking for a temporary intern to replace Anna until she returns in the fall. If you are interested, write to Richard Greenfield at firstname.lastname@example.org. Noemi Books is also looking for an intern for the summer.
