Birdbook Launch, 17 December!

It's on! Sidekick Books' Birdbook II: Freshwater Habitats will officially take flight at 7.30pm on Monday 17 December at Paper Dress Boutique and Bar, Shoreditch!

We'll be having short readings from a flock of the poets involved in the project, along with projections of the beautiful artwork representing each of these incredible freshwater birds. We're looking forward to meeting the talented writers and artists who have made this book such a treat to produce.

Nearest tubes are Shoreditch High St (Overground)Liverpool Street and Old Street, and stacks of buses go to the area.

Ah yes, and the Facebook event is here!

We'd love to say hello, so if you're in London at that time, come on down and have a flutter!

Fuselit in 2013

This is just a note to say that our mission to make Fuselit a twice-yearly event has thus far stumbled, as we've been thoroughly caught up with our work over at Sidekick Books, events surrounding our own poetry collections (both published by Salt this year), our day jobs and, oh, all sorts really!

But fear not; the Fuselit tradition will continue, and Amazon might be our most ambitious issue yet. If it does have to settle into more of an annual rhythm, so be it!

Binders Full of Women!

Sophie Mayer and Sarah Crewe, the all-editing, all-curating creators of the Pussy Riot anthology Catechism, have only gone and made sexy great binders full of poetry by women! If you need an excuse for a hearty dose of feminism and all-round love, the proceeds go to Rape Crisis UK and the Michael Causer Foundation. Pick up your binder today!

In case the title of this project rings no bells, here's a little something about Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
