Lea Graham - Hough & Helix & Where & Here & You, You, You (No Tell Motel)
"Hough & Helix & Where & Here & You, You, You creates energy by relentlessly kneading its central questions. It mixes sophisticated word choice with images gleaned from mythology and popular culture, but these blur past the reader, like images seen through the window of a train."
— Sean Singer (more here)

NoTell Motel To Close Doors
Launched in August 2004 by Reb Livingston and Molly Arden, No Tell Motel published over 2000 poems by almost 300 poets so far, and various poetry pooks and No Tell Motel collections as No Tell Books.
This book is the last that NoTell will publish for a while, and also marks the closure of the NoTell Online poetry magazine, with archives to remain online. Here's the note from editor Reb Livingston: "In case you haven't heard, No Tell Motel will be closing its doors in October. It's been a fabulous 7+ years of publishing the magazine and we're going to stop while we're on top. Thank you to everyone who contributed work and helped support the magazine.
