Macgregor Card on "Typing 'Wild Speech'"

Check 'em out: Macgregor Card blogging it it up for The Poetry Project. What's he saying? Just talking about some "Typing 'Wild Speech'" by Dana Ward and Dana Ward, Alli Warren and Brandon Brown's reading at Space Space in Brooklyn almost a month ago (time flies when you're hocking rad literature).

Oh snap. I just saw this, another write up of Typing 'Wild Speech' by Andy Gricevich at otherwise. It's so good.

We are already doing our first reprint of "Typing 'Wild Speech'" by Dana Tall-Drink-O-Cincinnati Ward! Huzzah! Thank you to everyone who bought a copy! Your copies are currently winging their ways to you by USPS.

Also wanted to let you all know that Dana has been cruising around the Mid-West giving readings and preaching The Word. He will be reading at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio as part of the Post_Moot Convocation 2010, which looks to be a bangin' weekend of readings.

Also, additionally, I wanted to give a few shout outs to those who helped with the design and production of the "Typing 'Wild Speech'" real quick.

Big ups to Matthew Arnone (What! What!) our radical and brilliant cover designer and one of our dear BFFs.

Big ups to our efficient, attractive and entertaining folding and stapling crew: Salem Peterson, Jon Hioki, Matthew Arnone, Zeecee Randall and John Sakkis. A righteous gang of BFFs.
*Check out photos of our "Poetry Taco Orgy Party" (aka chapbook folding/stapling and taco eating party) at Steve's flickr page here.

Big ups to Brandon Brown for his moral support, encouragement and advice throughout and always (BB-BFF). WHAT! GUCCI!

and DUH, thank you to Dana Voice-of-Butter-Heart-of-Gold Ward for "Typing 'Wild Speech'".

Also, if anyone would like to help with the second round of folding and stapling this weekend, drop us a line (

Thanks for taking part, everyone and thank you for reading! We're so stoked, can you tell?

A Blurb for Lindsey Boldt

Here's what Stan Apps has to say about Lindsey Boldt's 'Oh My, Hell Yes':

Lindsey Boldt’s “Oh My Hell Yes” is head-bobbing new poetry. Boldt is attuned to the essential uselessness of poetry—a uselessness that is essential to the way poets live, a uselessness that saves us. This book is essential reading in the way that some first chapbooks are, not too polished, not overly aware of what the poets want to hear. Boldt surprises us with intimate descriptions, of the sky, of dancing, and of the tender insults of gender politics. Readers will be moved by the honest idiosyncrasy of the work.

Awesome! And you know what? Stan's right. You will be moved by the honest idiosyncrasy of the work. I was and so can you. Buy your very own copy of 'Oh My, Hell Yes' over there on the right. I highly recommend it.

You should also read Stan's account of Lindsey and John Sakkis' reading at the PRB in L.A. last November. Here it is.

And speaking of Lindsey. Her poem 'Do Me Dreamlife' is featured in the first issue of Supermachine. It's a great read that also features Brandon Brown, Brent Cunningham, and other wonderful writers.
