Death,Debt & Divorce | Anthology of  6 Word Stories | 2012 | 4.5″ x 4.5” | Limited Edition of 25


Made for the 2012 Small Art Auction, the theme of this chapbook is lifted from the old adage that all auctions are a result of death, debt, or divorce. In this collection, seven writers approach these three themes through six word stories, with poignant, amusing, and breathtaking results.

These accordion-fold chapbooks have hand-set and letterpress-printed covers, made at Poinciana Paper Press.

the moon outlives

your waking.


…nothing left here

but burnt eyes.


She flew.

These empty rooms wail.
