Neither a poetry chapbook or a typical poetry zine, this new series will explore a range of (extra-)poetic materials, from short monographs/longer critical essays to collaborations around a theme/issue/site, from archival work to something akin to a mini artist’s catalog that might focus on someone(s)’s work from a variety of angles. Contributors are paid & print pamphlets will be cheap with free PDFs available upon publication.
Individual orders and subscriptions are now available for present & future pamphlets, which in 2020 will include new pamphlets from Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber, Peter Weiss, José Revueltas, Kevin Killian’s Amazon Reviews, & more!
