Dusie ist...




on a side note for others looking for info, Dusie is not an aesthetic (though perhaps one could be found in regard to the journals overall publications)

Dusie is based in Switzerland. Any poet who has ever published in Dusie could call themself a Dusie-poet. The new Kollektiv is not set in stone, and if you are thinking about participating in the next chap project, please first submit to the journal first. Where MaMa is the new DaDa!

1882-1966










a lyric elixir of death
embalms
the spindle spirits of your hourglass loves
on moon spun nights sets
icicled canopy
for corpses of poesy
with roses and northern lights

Where frozen nightingales in ilix
aisles sing burial rites

word auras--

I am pretty sure I have this!...among many other oddities. no, but really my father's name really is greene.

hone yr a t t e n t i o n s p a n!

Seeing that Dusie Press has only 'technically' been a paper press also, since it's debut in July, it is with much happiness that I report that several of Dusie's poets have caught the attention span theatre of others! jon leon's Tract, Rick Snyder's, Paper Poem, and Dana Ward& his New Couriers, all made the list.

Oh and I really want to read more of Lisa Robertson's work, esp after being incited by a comment on the silliman blog that Robertson is the Madonna for thinking girls! ha! love it!

in other news, if you ever send me anything please use stamps...I love stamps and always opt for stamps myself...so, I have been lifting the unmarked stamps of late, as it is just too damn difficult to get US stamps here...and I need them like, yesterday.



and in other chatter, go and purchase the new Fall edition of Rain Taxi! Noah Eli Gordan has reviewed Sawako Nakayasu's Insect Country (A) (Dusie) as well as my chap, To Stand to Sea, 2006 (The Tangent Press).

apparrently he received hundreds of chaps so it is really cool to be included!

Have been considering submitting to both a few contests as well as straight-up submissions to presses (which gratefully do not require fees) and mailing from Switzerland is not cheap, so that with contest fee and all other extras can cost 40 dollars! ouch! Some presses also require more than one manuscript. Anyone else sending out? Where?

die post ist da!

of late in the mail...

today I happily opened my post-box to relieve it of Insel! I have been searching for it for awhile, the last time I stupidly had my hands on it, and a very very different version, possibly not from Black Sparrow? I let it go, urgh... A Reader's Guide to Writer's Britain! pictured is the apothecary house, now b&b of the Brönte family, sigh, which I will soon be rooming at... i would post more, but blogger won't let me...& lo& behold,So to Speak!, (which I didn't subscribe to, tho very cool (karmic??? ) gift btw) check it! the next poetry contest deadline is October 15 and has a prize of $500 plus publication...

also, happy to report this new 'lil tasty.

of late i have been doing many mind numbing things, all of which I enjoy, but mind-numbing nonetheless. so when I receive darling chaps like Kristy Bowen's Archer Avenue and errata, I really should be better about reporting their receival! dancing girl press has an amazing editor, layout designer and poet all in one! thanks kristy! I hope to be at a point some day soon where I can post more about these lovelies.

if only...

18.9.06

wow.

if you haven't read this book, you certainly should, as it is certainly one of the most important new books of poetry in 2006... and it's now #26 on spd.org 's current best-seller list! go lay down some mula and get this book, just put out from Edge.

16.9.06

Happy Birthday Logan!

And what better way to announce to the blog-world that his first bookbook, The Singers, will appear with Dusie Press this fall!!!

Of late I've received some nice poesy mail. Saturday two pieces from jessica. one of which was a great pack of wallpaper clippings! thanks jess! the second was my monthly 4Square, a subscription only limited edition which features 4 women poets each with their own 4/4 square space. this month has work by Michelle Detorie, Anne Boyer, Helen White &T.A. Noonan. In the case of 4Square, you snooze you lose, you might just have to track down a subscriptee to steal one of these beauts for your very own! Tho come next June, I think, Jessica will be upping the price a bit to be able to pay the artist who does a lot of collab work for her for the covers AND to make more! Yippee! I have loved every cover, which is a cloth envelope keeper of sorts.

ooh, and I also received some poesy mail from Markala CyGist Press, which has an impressive new release of 3 new chaps, one of which is FACE TIME and if you liked MY SPACESHIP, well you'll really love this little gem which comes complete with a built in mirrored cover and everything! I had planned on submitting, but well, never did and I must admit had a pang of, oh man! today!!!
Hmmmph! This is the pic I had imagined writing with, and damn, Maude would be disappointed. And so, the books went awalking with me throughout the hobbit village in which I presently call home, and read both chaps. Scott Glassman gets the official newly christened 'Dusie Award' for the coolest word of the day, and that would be 'womblet', kind of like a chicklet, but with more umph! I was really in awe, on several levels over Guillermo Parra's new Caracas Notebook with the simulated Mead style composition book cover. First off, haven't I read his poetry before? I'm not sure, but I will look for it in the future. I am always amazed when poets write amazingly in not only their first, but their second language! In fact, I was urged to look up words in spanish! Crazy, if you knew what it has taken out of my being to learn German! In fact, I hope to review this new chap for Galatea or for the Dusie blog, just so you know Mark! Thanks again& kudos to CYGIST and its lovely pressing state! GO HERE AND BUY SOME CHAPS: bloggers get a buck off each chap discount, or all four CyGIST books for 20 bucks and a free one thrown in if I read it right over at the diy blog.

Soon, for better or worse, I will be sending out my own MS. It is waiting some much appreciated feedback....As it is September poet-peeps, who else is sending out MS' this month and to where...ooooh, pray tell!
