Poets with chapbooks! I received this message this week, and maybe you’d like to contribute. -Cole
My name is Brittany and I am contacting you from Poets House, a nonprofit literary organization located in Battery Park City in lower Manhattan. Our library consists of about 50,000 poetry titles, all of which are donated by members, publishers and/or the authors themselves.
Each year we organize a poetry Showcase which features new poetry titles. This year we are asking for donations of books published/made between April 2009 and April 2010. We organize the books and/or audio by publisher so that patrons and poets can get a sense of a publisher’s poetry list. After the showcase the books we recieve become part of our permanent collection.
We are hoping to acquire more chapbooks, zines, broadsides and other handmade poetry publications in order to better represent the artistic community in our 2010 showcase. If you would like to participate by donating copies of one or more of your publications, we will gladly bookplate them with your name so that you may be represented this year.
