1st Quarter Preventable Gun Violence. 2021. Volume One.

Gnashing Teeth Publishing is embarking on an ambitious and necessary project: “1st Quarter Preventable Gun Violence. 2021. Volume One.”  From Jan 1 – Mar 31, there were 126 mass gun violence events. The numbers are going up every day and it has become a dull roar drowned out by our non-stop news cycle.  We must demand better.

Joanna Grant


This set of poems and flash fiction take us across the ocean to meet the people and places who have shaped the author. In her work as a military contractor, she has been places we think we know, but she shows us the humanity in all. It is, indeed, the poet as visitor who drifts through place and time.
Juan Manuel Pérez

La Santa Madre Tamalera

Don't let her age fool you. La Santa Madre Tamalera is cooking up trouble. This graphic novel is actually a 666 line sonnet that is anything but ordinary.

Crisosto Apache


“Ghostword” is inspired by Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s, A Fool’s Life, written on June 20, 1927, during the three hours of his suicide.A cycle of life experiences separates each section beginning with birth, then moving into adulthood and then death transforming the collection into the next world. This collection is a necessary work, as the author examines the conflicts in his life as a gay [Native American] growing up on a reservation.
