Spotlight On Red Bird Chapbooks

A little Hamline affiliation goes a long way

Red Bird Chapbooks—founded by Hamline alumna Dana Hoeschen MALS ’07, MFA ’13and currently run by alumna Sarah Hayes MFA ’11—has been handmaking chapbooks since 2010. The authors Red Bird represent span the globe, but the interns, editors, and board members tend to all have one unifying factor: a Hamline affiliation. The Red Bird flock knows the value of meaningful interaction and purposeful production—and the hand-drawn red bird on the inside back cover of each book is proof of that dedication.
