I just found out from Hosho McCreesh (one of the wonderful poets I’ve had the good fortune to interview and correspond with) that there is a site in Ireland publishing some beautiful broadsides! Not only that, but they feature several of the previous poets I’ve interviewed. Here is Hosho’s response to my inquiry for his publication at Ten Point Press, followed by the link to Ten Point Press:
This is actually a broadside, full-color letterbox format, autographed & suitable-for-framing, on a cold-pressed Italian card(stock)! It's gonna be pretty darn nice... it's just 1 poem, entitled THE BEAUTIFUL FIRE.
10pt Press has already printed the likes of Dan Fante and Tony O'Niell, & this latest round of broadsides will feature Christopher Cunningham, justin.barrett, Brian McGettrick (a fine poet out of Ireland), & …the good news is 10pt Press pays their poets a little bit for each broadside sold...which is terrific!
Thanks much for your interest & for lending help via the HOUND! I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we really appreciate it!"
Always a pleasure, and I hope all of you will take a moment to look around the site and peruse the broadside offerings, if you’re able, send an e-mail to the press if you would like to purchase a broadside: info (AT) tenpointdesign (DOT) com. Hosho estimates they’re about $5.00 each. Isn’t it fabulous that this press is able to pay their poets a little something for their contributions?
Thanks for reading, please stop in tomorrow for another featured site (ran out of time to make up a featured poet review thanks to my Big Dance Performance gig over the weekend)…
