That’s right, National Poetry Month is on the horizon and April is cruel, poet and publishers punishing each other and themselves alike…
First on the agenda…Editor in Chief Mike Zone will be attending St. Augustine PoetFest (brainchild of Chris Bodor)…taking part in a discussion panel regarding Poets and Change (essentially poetry and politics), then there’s the ego-inflated reading followed by a book signing
But that’s not all DFP is doing, we’re proud to announce we will be sponsoring the UNDERGROUNDS SOUND SHOW featuring Wayne Mason at ST. AUGUSTINE’S most popular punk and counterculture venue SHANGIA NOBBY’S where things might get a little wild
But what is the press going to do specifically?
This year we’ve got five releases starting this weekend for each week of April to celebrate National Poetry Month…
ALL THINGS CONSIDERED BY Roz Washington, the follwup to SUNLIFE.
PSALM OF THE PSYCHE WARD by Ari Whipple…a wonderful and at the same time horrific hybrid of poetry and art.
REASSEMBLANCES by Edward Wells another uninque poetical experience about the non-existent life based in part on the author’s own life…read below his pic damn it…
Melissa Wray’s debut poetry collection chronicling loss, addiction, wayward adventures and meditative contemplation. If you liked J. Maxwell’s SOBER THOUGHTS FROM THE CRAZY HOUSE or Brenda Christies STRANDS OF STRUGGLE, you’ll dig this.
MILENKO ŽUPANOVIĆ returns with a third volume of poetry and prose, a combination of IMMORTAL DREAMS and PSALM OF LAST DAYS intermingled with new work paying tribute to ideas of the holy, the terrible, revelations and the end starting a new beginning
You genuinely have to be a sadist to release five books in a month while sponsoring a show and attending PoetFest along with writing your shit that for some people still want to publish but what hell, April Cruelty comes but once a year.
