4/30 Poetry Forum in Columbus

Monday at 7 pm I have the honor of reading for The Poetry Forum in Columbus, Ohio. With two 20-minute sets, I can go deep! The open mic there is always stellar. Plus the venue has a fine beer selection and brassieres hanging from the chandeliers. A perfect recipe for quasi-divine mayhem and poetic semi-madness. My last reading of April 2018! Watch me breathe fire or, if that fails, turn into John Burroughs right before your eyes.

The Poetry Forum featuring John Burroughs
at Bossy Grrls Pin-up Joint

Reading will be followed by Monday Mayhem Burlesque!

Crisis Chronicles Press publishes Where Never Was Already Is by Smith

I am so very excited to announce the publication of underground art legend Steven B. Smith's magnum opus, Where Never Was Already Is, a collection of decades worth of his best poetry combined with a liberal array of his renowned collage art.

If not for discovering Smith and his work, I might never have attended a live poetry event or become a publisher. I cannot overstate his importance and influence, but not just on me. He is a master of language and rhythm and distilling innumerable harmonious essences from disparate parts. His humor is delightful and biting. His sensitivity and insight are unsurpassed. And no one is better at wordplay. Mix in love, lust, brain dust, the news, the blues and a lifetime of experiences that would make one hell of a series of movies and out comes Where Never Was Already Is, the must-have book of 2018.




Where Do You Want It?

Where Never Was Already Is by Steven B. Smith is perfect bound, 6" x 9", featuring 27 collages and roughly 250 poems on 324 pages. Cover collage and author photo also by Smith. ISBN: 978-1-940996-49-3. Available for $15 from Crisis Chronicles Press, 3431 George Avenue, Parma, Ohio 44134 USA.

Meet and hear Smith at these special upcoming events:
4/21 at 7pm during the Kleft Crisis 2018 poetry festival at Mac's Backs in Cleveland Heights.
4/22 at 6pm during the Tongue-in-Groove Poetry Jam at the Millard Fillmore Presidential Library in Cleveland.

Smith: poet 55 years, artist 54 years. His books include Zen Over Zero - Selected Poems 1964-2008 on City Poetry Press; Unruly on Crisis Chronicles Press; Hip Cat Femur Whack Give a Doc a Bone on NightBallet Press; and his memoir Stations of the Lost & Found, a True Tale of Armed Robbery, Stolen Cars, Outsider Art, Mutant Poetry, Underground Publishing, Robbing the Cradle, and Leaving the Country by Smith & Lady on City Poetry Press.

See his art and poetry on agentofchaos.com, Smith & Lady's blogs on walkingthinice.com, and his songs on reverbnation.com/mutantsmith where he sort of sings his words with music by Peter Ball and Billy Clarksville.

Smith says his greatest achievement is finding and marrying Lady K. 13 years ago and their selling his place to live for 31 months in 10 countries on 3 continents.

Noise Update

Jessie Herzfeld, John Burroughs & Shelley Chernin
perform "Speaking in Lungs" 4/8/2018 at Mahall's
[photo by Rob Galo]
After my last few readings (Nervous Dog, Ekphrastacy and the NightBallet book release) were so serious (the subject matter of my new book lends itself to that) I decided to just have fun yesterday at Noise Lunch and be a bit of a goof. Fortunately I had amazing collaborators in Jessie Herzfeld and Shelley Chernin. Thanks to Lisa Miralia and Margo Emm for pulling together such an unforgettable happening. After three great poetic events in the past four days and spending every spare moment this week trying to get Smith's book to the printer on deadline (a mission accomplished early this morning), I'm glad to have a down half-day to start catching up on a bunch of neglected miscellany that I'd like to get done before I go out of town Thursday. Maybe I'll even find an hour to read the news and take Leda for a walk. Stay tuned for a blog post about Smith's magnum opus, Where Never Was Already Is, the biggest book Crisis Chronicles Press has ever published. It's not only massive, but masterful. Lucky me!

Crisis Chronicles Press publishes Serving, the new book by Athens Poet Laureate Kari Gunter-Seymour

Crisis Chronicles Press is thrilled to announce the publication of Kari Gunter-Seymour's highly anticipated new poetry book, Serving, on 26 March 2018.

"The poems in Kari Gunter-Seymour's Serving are so tender, reading them hurts, but it's a sweet ache, the kind worth enduring. The collection begins with the speaker's memory of her son as a young boy, in 'Oshkosh bibs and tiny / red tennis shoes,' but in the next poem, he is a young adult, deploying with his 'tactical gear' and 'newly shaved head. Why isn't this juxtaposition jarring? Because that fierce, abiding love is a kind of umbilicus between a mother and her child, regardless of age or distance. The poems in Serving are so much about place, about home, whether Appalachia or Kandahar. As Gunter-Seymour shows us, poem after masterful poem, serving is not only about sacrifice, what those in the military do for our country. Serving is also what we do for one another, for the people we call home, no matter where they are." 
Maggie Smith, Author of Good Bones (Tupelo Press). 

"Kari Gunter-Seymour's Serving is a heartbreaking and honest portrayal of the life of a war veteran's mother. Gunter-Seymour juxtaposes the horrors of combat with perfectly rendered images of childhood, domesticity, and home, allowing the reader to experience a perspective we don't often hear about. This collection is eye-opening, unapologetic, unforgettable, and absolutely necessary." 
Logen Cure, Juror, 2016 Yellow Chair Review Chapbook Contest and author of Letters to Petrarch (Unicorn Press).

Where Do You Want It?

Serving was the 2016 Yellow Chair Review Chapbook Contest runner up. It is perfect bound, 6x9", and features 18 poems on 28 pages. Cover design by Kari Gunter-Seymour. ISBN: 978-1-940996-48-6. Available for $7 from Crisis Chronicles Press, 3431 George Avenue, Parma, Ohio 44134.

Join us for Just When You Think You Know Her..., Kari's official Poet Laureate reading (and hometown debut of Serving) on 4/26/2018, 7 p.m., at ARTS/West, 132 W. State Street, Athens, Ohio 45701.

Twice a Pushcart Prize nominee, Kari Gunter-Seymour blames her method of writing on the rich Appalachian Ohio soil, her wildly eclectic family, her neighbors and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She holds a B.F.A. in graphic design and an M.A. in commercial photography and is an instructor in the School of Journalism at Ohio University. She is the Poet Laureate for Athens, Ohio. Her poems can be found in numerous literary journals, Rattle, Crab Orchard Review, The American Journal of Poetry, The Los Angeles Times and on her website at www.karigunterseymourpoet.com.

Kari is the founder/curator of the Women of Appalachia Project, an arts organization she created to address discrimination directed at women from the Appalachian region.

My Amazon Marketplace Selling Privileges Have Been Restored

You may recall that at the end of last year Amazon suspended my seller account pending review.

Today they finally reactivated it after I CC-ed the big man, jeff@amazon.com, in my latest complaint this morning:

Dear Amazon,

Why has it taken two months (and counting) to review my seller account? I sent you all the information you required with a detailed explanation and I've gotten nothing but rote and or automated responses back saying my account is still under review.  Meanwhile, customers who seek the unique books I sell in the Amazon Marketplace are complaining that they wrote to Amazon well over a month ago and were assured these books would be available again in a week and they are still waiting because you haven't completed the review of my account, which to this point has had a stellar rating from customers.

Sincerely,
John


Within two hours I received this response:

"Hello,

We reviewed your account and the information you provided, and we have decided that you may sell on Amazon.com again.

In our efforts to protect our community, we sometimes err on the side of caution. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused."

So you can start buying used and new books from me there again! However, if it's Crisis Chronicles Press books you're looking for, it's still better (and less expensive for you and us) if you buy them directly from the publisher.

Thank you for your continued support!

Without meeting Melissa Guthrie when I was 14 or so, I might never have been a poet. Her obituary doesn't do her justice. But then neither can I.  Fare well, dear friend.

Loss and Foundering, my new book from NightBallet Press, available for pre-order


I am thrilled to report that NightBallet Press will publish my new poetry book, Loss and Foundering, on 2 April 2018. But if you pre-order a signed copy now, you will also receive a rare broadside of one of my poems that is not in the book.


In June 2014, 48th Street Press published broadsides of two of my poems. They only made 20 copies of each. Since I only distributed a few at the time and stashed the rest away for a special occasion, I still have 11 copies of "Words Dance" and 11 copies of my "Makes Her Mark." Since that special occasion has arrived, I will pick one broadside to send to the first 22 people who pre-order Loss and Foundering.

UPDATE: The free 48th Street Press broadsides I mentioned above have all been claimed. But fear not, we have more incentives! The next 20 people who pre-order Loss and Foundering will receive a different rare broadside, a new 2018 NightBallet Press edition of my poem "Low Kay Shun," numbered and signed. Only 22 copies of this new broadside will be printed (with me and the publisher keeping 1 each), so the only way anyone be able to procure one is by being one of the next 20 people to pre-order my new book.

Thank you for your love and support.
