Support Reality Street

One of my favorite things about Reality Street books are the names in the back. I enjoy knowing that these people, many of them very familiar, all have Seoul Bus Poems. I also like being a part of other people's books. In 2011 I will be. Maybe you'd like to sign up for the supporter scheme and get these five books and have your name in the back of each?
  • James Davies: Plants
  • Leopold Haas: The Raft
  • Richard Makin: Dwelling
  • Carol Watts: Occasionals
  • Johan de Wit: Gero Nimo

How did this happen?

Rose Metal Press is five

Rose Metal Press is five years old. Adult teeth have moved in. They need money for braces. Help them! They will help you. For details on their funding drive, click here.

RMP will also have two reading periods this year. One period will be for a chapbook manuscript. The other reading period will be for a manuscript of a length appropriate to perfect bind. I say you submit to both. I also say you win both. Let no book but yours be published in 2012.
