Book Trailer for Contest Winner The Imagination of Lewis Carroll

We are thrilled to release the book trailer for this year's contest-winning chapbook: William Todd Seabrook's The Imagination of Lewis Carroll. The chapbook will launch in early August.

Special thanks to Nikki Lee and Todd Seabrook for creating the trailer!

About The Imagination of Lewis Carroll, winner of the RMP 8th Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest, chosen by judge Michael Martone :

Written in a series of quick, curious moments, The Imagination of Lewis Carroll is a fabulist biography that eschews sense for nonsense and accuracy for truth.

Preordering will begin in late June at
