Shifts in focus related to the Soft Skull's growth, our own theories about what works and doesn't for poetry publishing, and everything we learned along the way have lead to the founding of Bloof Books, which will continue to publish poetry in the same spirit.
As Richard notes in his post, Soft Skull is not over. And they deserve and can really use your support now! He's offering 40% off ALMOST EVERYTHING now at the Soft Skull store. So allow us to take this opportunity to suggest you pick up some of the poetry, if you haven't.
Our best wishes to Richard & Soft Skull.
