lit shiz...

Sunlight at Midnight, Darkness at Noon: The Cunningham/McCreesh Letters enters the editorial stage/design stage over at OA Press in August. the artist Nick Volkert has been tapped to do the cover illustration. we're very excited to get this bad boy underway, but in the meantime you should purchase the press' first offering by Ben Tanzer, Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine upon its release and support indy publishers like OA.

Sean Lynch of Ireland's Ten Point Press has asked for a few poems for a new broadside project he's doing, and the short list of initial offerings is impressive, my presence notwithstanding: justin.barrett, Tony O'Neil, Hosho McCreesh and Brian McGettrick. these will be in an edition of 50 signed broads and will be available for purchase later in the year. I'm honored that Sean thought of me for the project.

UPDATE: the Tony O'Neil and Hosho McCreesh four of the five broadsides (missing only the McGettrick, which is coming soonest) are now available from Ten Point for pre-sale. click the link above and get your copy before they're gone. and they will get gone...

stay tuned...
