Forty-Three North

Forty-Three North is a poetry chapbook series featuring poets from the Lake Erie region.


Forty-Three North is a reference to the approximate latitude of Lake Erie. The series is meant to honor the literary communities along Lake Erie, but especially in Buffalo, which is where Saddle Road Press operated before its relocation to Hawai'i.


Please note that as of June 30th, 2017, the 43 North Chapbook Series will go all-digital (Kindle) with no print editions available. If you want a print copy, be sure to order before mid-June 2017.
