From now until the end of the year I, on behalf of Wheelhouse Magazine & Press, will be listing small presses in need of YOUR help. Of course all presses all the time are in need of your help, including the most successful presses, i.e., those small hubs that continually make books that we love and about which you're liable to say: how do they do it? Well, almost always by the seat of their pants. That's how.
Since Wheelhouse is predominantly an online venture--with our first letterpressed chapbooks about to be published this upcoming summer--we don't have anything physical to offer as a holiday special, or gift for the holidays, etc. Not that you shouldn't give yourself the gift of our current, past, and upcoming issues and online chapbooks. So, we figured we'd alert you to holiday offers that other small presses we love are offering. These books are usually inexpensive, and now they are really inexpensive. So, see below. Take advantage of the b-shit holiday season, tell it to fuck off by getting something from each of the below presses. We did, and we're f-ing poor--and seasonally depressed.
I'll add a few more presses in separate posts, including (since they did not fit in the taglines below), Taup. Sky, Cuneiform Press, BlazeVox, and the new artist book poetry collective BLACK RADISH BOOKS, which, among the first titles will be yours truly's Occultations, and books by Susana Gardner, Nicole Mauro, Jill Stengel, Cara Benson, and several others. For now:
WHEELHOUSE PRESS FUND:
If you live in or around Seattle, do think about donating to the Wheelhouse PRESS fund. PRESS is a literary series of events, performances, conferences, devoted to the intersection of socially engaged text arts and radical politics. We regularly have guests read, perform, and collaborate, and of course this costs money.
If interested in donating--come to one of our events! They are all announced here and thru Facebook. Next up is CA Conrad, beginning March 4th, ending March 7th, at The Evergreen State College. You can also contact me by email for token donations.
Amazing titles, including the recently published Disaster Suites by Rob Halpern, Landscapes of Dissent by Kaia Sand and Jules Boykoff, The Shunt by David Buuck, and the forthcoming Armies of Compassion by Eleni Steccoplous. Get them here.
