Half Day Moon Press showcases mini digital chapbooks by choice artists and poets. These are curated by Joseph S. Aversano and are made available for free.
For each title released, Half Day Moon Press arranges for a tree sapling to be planted in Anatolia. The geographic home of the Press itself is in the middle of the central Anatolian steppe in Ankara. The saplings are planted in memorial forests via TEMA (The Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion).
Thus far, the press has had trees planted in the following locations:
6 saplings in Sivas Karşıyaka Memorial Forest;
For the time being, only solicited manuscripts are accepted. However, it is hoped that reading windows for open submissions will be announced at some point in the future once the curator's personal circumstances allow for this.
