Open Poetics Series 1
Open Poetics Series 1 is a Litmus Press digital publishing project. The series provides critical editions of lesser-known and out-of-print works of contemporary poetry that were originally published by O Books and The Post-Apollo Press, and are now being managed and distributed by Litmus. Titles in this series incorporate external materials—critical essays, alternate versions, reviews, translations, and archival images—that have been curated by a board of poets and teachers. This project offers a living archival solution to the challenges of visibility and accessibility faced by avant-garde and experimental writing championed by small presses.
