Bloof in Buffalo



Come see us at the
Buffalo Small Press Book Fair
April 6 & 7


Shanna Compton
will be reading at this afterparty
with mIKEAL aND, Robin Brox,
Christopher Fritton, David Hadbawnik,
Michael Sikkema & Jen Tynes

Sunday, March 24, 2013



In April, we will be posting fresh poem-drafts to the Bloof Blog every day, in the wild manner of Maureen Thorson's nutty contrivance known as NaPoWriMo.

Cast includes Danielle Pafunda, Sandra Simonds, Pattie McCarthy, Elisabeth Workman, Becca Klaver, and Shanna Compton...perhaps a few others TBD. Jennifer L. Knox may be posting at Ada Limón's blog, as is traditional? Peter Davis will be posting his efforts at his new blog. (We'll link to those.) And Catie Rosemurgy is joining us too!

Late-breaking update: Jared White & Kirsten Kaschock will be posting drafts too! Jared with us here and Kirsten at her blog.

Will any of us achieve 30/30?

Will we groan and gnash?

Shall we faint or pule?

Watch and see.

So much newness!


  

The first copies of Jared White's This Is What It Is Like to Be Loved by Me are now available via our store, here.

And very early preorder copies of Peter Davis's TINA are available via our store, here. The rest of the world must wait till official publication date in May. (How sad for them.)
