That’s When the Knives Come Down
by Dolan Morgan
with illustrations by Robin E. Mork
Forthcoming August 2014
At once absurd, harrowing, and inimitable, That’s When the Knives Come Down establishes Dolan Morgan as the writer whose voice will supersede your inner monologue and expose your roiling inner turmoil.
Freedom, politics, government, human rights, war, equality, justice, and the search for individual identity in an increasingly homogenized world.
Featuring work by Sam Cha, Krysten Hill, April Ranger, Michael Thurston, and more!
Underlife and Portico (second edition)
by Michael Lynch
Winner of the 2013 Jean Pedrick Chapbook Prize!
“Michael Lynch’s poems are pure vision: language becoming image becoming language again. This is a book of poetry you’ll return to as many times as God has names.”
— Rusty Barnes, Breaking It Down, Redneck Poems
Through his quietly profound verse, Michael Lynch catalogues the seemingly insignificant milestones in contemporary life, causing the reader to feel at once deeply flawed and lucky to be so.
“[apt] has great breadth of voice and style. This issue soars.”
— Tripp Reade, The Review Review
Featuring work by Christian Anton Gerard, Delaney Nolan, Andrew Plattner, Alexis Pope, Nate Pritts, and more!
“Filled from cover to cover with strong, daring pieces… There’s not a single selection in the issue that fades into the background.”
— Sarah Carson, NewPages
Featuring work by Maureen Alsop, Lindsay Coleman, Clayton Michaels, Lam Pham, Noel Sloboda, Russ Woods, and more!
They Used to Dance on Saturday Nights
by Gillian Devereux
“When I finished this collection I could practically taste the pale pink sugar of the carnival cotton candy machine. I wanted to lick my sticky-sweet fingers clean.”
— Leesa Cross-Smith, Sundog Lit
Mermaids, headless girls, Ferris wheels, women aflame. Bears who dance (or used to) and crowds who pay to watch. Whether you’re here for the conjoined twins or the trapeze artist, you’re bound to find yourself somewhere in Gillian Devereux’s sideshow.
“With the breadth and caliber of the writing showcased in its inaugural print issue, apt promises to become a valuable contributor to the restless and ever-evolving literary scene of today.”
— Michelle Bailat-Jones, Necessary Fiction
Featuring work by David Bartone, Shannon Derby, Dolan Morgan, Vincent Scarpa, N. A’Yara Stein, and more!
