NewA Longhouse Birdhouse

A poem (or more) will be offered by the hour or with the day and at the very least once a week. So stay on your webbed toes. The aim is to share good hearty-to-eat poetry. This is a birdhouse size file from the larger Longhouse which has been publishing from backwoods Vermont since 1971 books, hundreds of foldout booklets, postcards, sheafs, CD, landscape art, street readings, web publication, and notes left for the milkman. Established by Bob & Susan Arnold for your pleasure.

Woodburners We Recommend Publications 2007

As an act of goodwill and for poetry - Longhouse will be sending out complete publications - online - of one poet we have published in booklet form for everyone to share. It's a way of giving back to many of you who have sent to us poems, letters, purchases and the same goodwill over the years. The series will fly in under the banner of our Woodburners We Recommend. It should also be felt as a certain warmth in memory of our close friend and long time working companion Cid Corman. Each monthly booklet will also be available for purchase from Longhouse. Issued in a very limited keepsake edition of 50 copies. Some signed copies will also be available. For those readers that travel back as far as 1972 when Longhouse began, you know poetry was released like bandits by the day, by the week, by the month, and always free. We have never taken on grants and meant poetry to be seen & heard & on poetry terms. For the years 2004-7, and within the universal cyber cosmos, we would like to share a dozen poets with you....and only ask that you share them

INTRODUCTION - For many artists there stands an iconic figure that embodies the fruition of our own dreams and goals, a person who exemplifies our best intentions to lead a creative and meaningful life. In many ways, this is how I came to view Cid Corman over the years after meeting him in 1995, in Boulder, Colorado. The more I would come to know Cid, through his life story and his writing, the more I would find him to be the kind of man I hoped I would be someday ­ prolific in his art, contemplative, connected, happy.

For wonderful connecting energy & truly handsome book productions ~ Jeff Bryan & Cirrelda Snider-Bryan's La Alameda Press: "HISTORY -- La Alameda Press began on a kitchen table with the production of Kate Horsley's novel Crazy Woman in 1992 and we are still at it. Perhaps it would be more accurate to classify us as a micro-press since we operate out of our house by the skin of our teeth. We try to make beautiful books of artistic and cultural merit. Many, but not all, of our titles are poetry because we believe poetry is an essential artform in all of its sincerity, various passions, experimentalism, and wisdom."

Rivendell Literary Arts Journal - online selections from its current Winter 2002/3 issue edited by Sebastian Matthews - " .. Each issue of RIVENDELL will focus on a specific place out of which art is made and enjoyed: a geographic location, a community, a shared sensibility. Twice a year, we will gather together poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, original artwork, and criticism from this region to create an exciting "multilingual" conversation. RIVENDELL is also proud to introduce a new genre: "dispatches." Part prose poem, part short short, these "reports from the front lines of everyday life" will add an eclectic, quirky, unexpected element to the mix... " (Sebastian Matthews, Rivendell)

Gerard Malanga - "Gerard Malanga, poet, photographer and filmmaker, worked closely with Andy Warhol during the artist's most creative period in the mid-Sixties. His several books of poetry, ranging from chic death (1971) to Mythologies of the Heart (1996), have earned him worldwide recognition..." read on at this site ....
