JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - Oct. 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Prolific Press Has Published The White Forest by Joel Van Valin via their wildly successful International Chapbook Series that is quickly taking the publishing world by storm! Many poets are aspiring to be published by Prolific Press because the press is quickly earning a reputation for publishing little-known writers alongside its more successful clients. According to Prolific Press, its only interest is in the quality of the work, not the pedigree of the writer, which flies in the face of nearly every other publishing platform in existence today. Despite the conventions of chapbook publishing in general. Prolific Press has stepped forward by including many of the elements found in more robust offerings, like an ISBN and Bar Code for its chapbooks, which sets the bar high for competitors in a chapbook publishing market widely known for minimal investments and small returns (if any).

Joel Van Valin's first collection of poetry is a stroll through a lyrical forest filled with sonnets, aubades, hymns, spells and love poems. His verse signals a return to form, evoking Frost, Millay, Dickinson and Byron.

Joel Van Valin is the publisher of the literary journal Whistling Shade, which he founded in 2001. He is the author of a time travel novel, The Grand Dissolute (2015), and a fantasy novel, The Flower of Clear Burning (2002), and he often blogs for the time travel website His poetry and fiction have appeared in journals such as Dislocate, The Avalon Review, Knockout and The Talking Stick. His poem "Fairy Tale" won the 2017 Park Bugle poetry contest, and his sonnet "The Empty Road" won Best Farewell Sonnet in 2012 in the Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest. Van Valin has been writing poetry since high school, when he was strongly influenced by the Romantics and early 20th century American lyric poets such as Robert Frost, Elinor Wylie and Edna St. Vincent Millay. He currently works as a technical writer and lives with his wife and twin sons in St. Paul.
