Guerilla Poetics

Most of us know the that the likelihood of our poetry being published by a big press (like Norton, Knoph or Bantam Books) is nill. If you aren't already a big name -- forget it. Most of also know the difficulty of getting big store distribution for a small press. There are many obstacles that keep the best poets from ever being read. Though there are excellent poets that are fortunate to get the breaks that bring major publication, most of the best poets will only be found in the small press.

Some poets are fighting back. They are lurking in booksores, firing off missives and planting literary mines within the heart of the big press projects. Should you want to enlist as an operative, the Guerilla Poetics Project needs your efforts but they have rules. Check them out. Join the Struggle.
