Abstract

Collection of Trilobite Press Poetry and Fiction chapbooks.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Trilobite Press was founded by Dr. Richard Sale, a professor of English at the University of North Texas, to foster a creative climate in contemporary poetry and fiction. The press was an avenue contemporary poets and authors could take to share their works with a local and national audience. In 1982, the Contemporary Poets Reading series was created by the Friends of the North Texas Libraries, in conjunction with Dr. Sale and the North Texas Department of English.

After each poetry or fiction reading, a chapbook was published  to showcase a collection of the reader’s work. The series began with a reading, and subsequent published chapbook titled To the Earth, from Del Marie Rogers.  This visionary series continued to host prolific, admired, and captivating poets.

A few of the chapbooks included in the collection feature early works by poets who have garnered celebrated success in their careers. These poets include Naomi Shibab Nye, award winner from both the Texas Institute of Letters and the International Poetry Forum; B.H. Fairchild, who won the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award in 1999 for his collection titled The Art of the Lathe; and Albert Goldbarth, the only poet to receive the National Books Critics Circle Award in 1991 and in 2001, for his works titled Heaven and Earth: A Cosmology (1991) and Saving Lives (2001).

In 1997, following close to fifteen years of creative prosperity for the Contemporary Poets Reading Series, the Friends of the Libraries established sponsorship of the Short Fiction Writers series. Similar to the poetry readings, this series also featured publication of the reader’s work.

The publications of the works in both series continues to accomplish Dr. Sale’s goal of fostering a creative environment for poets and fiction writers to present their words in a formal format, advancing their careers. Also, the proceeds from the publication sales support UNT Libraries Special Collections.

The following chapbooks are included in the Trilobite Press Collection:
