MEANDER SCAR

Flood Meander Scar is a river's experiment: high water forges new flow patterns. The mainstream may never frequent these pathways; yet, the record of such possibilities intensifies our awareness.

WITNESS POST

Witness Post refers to a signpost "placed on a claim line when it cannot be placed in the corner because terrain makes sustainability and reclamation difficult. These writers bear witness to this complex task; their claims work toward awareness and action.

CONFLUENCE

Confluence occurs when two or more streams merge or when non-riverine bodies of water meet. This poetry series seeks such convergence by publishing writers from divergent communities — ecological and aesthetic.

WAVEFRONT

The geological term, Wavefront, refers to a surface of a seismic disturbance. Stone shifts. Splash. Visual record. Light is sent out in all directions. Artists in this series give us direction by pointing to edges of beauty; they lure others into their wake.

 

 

HIGH WATERMARK

Our High Watermark Salo[o]ns pair writers and artists for an exhibition and performance. Each gala is documented in achapbook with full color plates. This series began our press. Stockport Flats is named for a flood plain on the Upper Delaware River.

OXBOW CUTOFF

An oxbow lake cutoff is a small curved lake lying on the flood plain of a river that is the remnant of a meander. Subsequent books by experimentalists push the current Meander Scar into new curves.
