**P-Queue/Queue Books

P-Queue was founded in 2003 by Sarah Campbell with the special intent to investigate the overlaps and departures between the prose line and that of verse. Today P-Queue continues these investigations, while also exploring other such tipping points, including visual-textual, spoken-written, and polemic-poetic. A chapbook series started in 2007, and treats primarily collaborative projects.
