Glass Poetry is having a bundle sale on its chapbooks from its first three years.

a portion of all sales through the Glass store, from June 2019 through September 2019, will be donated to @RAICESTEXAS, in support of their mission to help separated families, detained families, unaccompanied minors, and others who are seeking asylum in the United States.

know, that Glass Poetry puts out wonderful chapbooks and you should take their word as opposed to mine, but I have had words for some of them:
