In 2009, Sonia Farmer founded Poinciana Paper Press to make handbound limited-edition chapbooks of Caribbean literature, including for her own work. She now almost exclusively self publishes with her own press using multiple methods of distribution and materials.
Her forthcoming poetry collection, The Best Estimation in the World, is now available for pre-order and will launch in October 2019. To reserve your copy of the limited edition book with letterpress-printed covers, email by Sonia at sonia [at] poincianapaperpress.com. You can also pre-order a print-on-demand copy at Amazon.
Her fist full-length poetry collection, Infidelities, which was longlisted for the 2018 OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature in the poetry category, can be purchased in Nassau, The Bahamas, at The Current: Baha Mar Gallery & Art Center, Doongalik Studios, or at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Copies are also available at Prairie Lights in Iowa City and at Paper Based in Trinidad.
