If nothing else, our press is about the heart. Each issue should bring about a sense of connection and matters of the shared human experience. We want to foster a love triangle between the reader, the author, and the words. In reading Bitterzoet (pronounced Bitter -“joot”), we hope to invoke the ideas presented in Anne Carson’s essays on Eros and the Bittersweet. We publish work regularly via our blog-roll magazine and ‘bonbon’ chapbooks throughout the year.
The dry nitty gritty:
Conceived on a dark night in New Haven Connecticut in June 2013, Bitterzoet is the brainchild of Wes Solether and Pattie Flint, two hopelessly romantic friends that met at an AWP conference.
We are based in Brighton England and Chicago Illinois, simultaneously.
We strive to provide as much free content as we can; any prices are only to cover materials and shipping. We do this for free because we believe art should be accessible to everyone.
Sweet things are the reason we both enjoy life.
