    Because of space constraints, only selections from the cc&d poetry chapbook releases are included in this collection book. (The only author names that may not be listed alphabetically are for pieces of artwork sprinkled selectively throughout the book, from different issues.) To know exactly what is included in this collection book, view the listing below. All author entries are listed in this collection book in alphabetical order — in all 2011 collection books, writings are not separated by issue, but alphabetically by author name. This means that all of the writings appearing in multiple issues by one author appear together in this collection book — in the print book, book page headers indicate which month’s issue released the writing.
