The Operating System is pleased to announce the new Bowery Poetry imprint, in collaboration with Bowery Arts + Science, in its first volume: 'An Exercise in Necromancy', by Patrick Roche.

Bowery Poetry’s Chapbook Slam is an annual competition where poets face off at Bowery Slam for a chance to have their work published. Patrick Roche is the Chapbook Slam’s first winner.

Review: "Now that there’s a new Bowery Poetry Club and new Bowery Poetry imprint at The Operating System, we better have some new poems. And poems just don’t get newer, fresher, or more timely than Patrick Roche’s simple explosions. 'An Exercise in Necromancy' is the New Confessional – direct, unflinching, pure. Ah yes. 'Watch me fight and watch me fight and watch me fight and watch me fight/And watch me kiss this city back so hard it never stops shining.' " - Bob Holman

Join us in this pre-Chapbook Slam kickoff with last year's winner, and 2017 Slam Team Member, Patrick Roche.
