AngelHousePress began NationalPoetryMonth.ca in 2009 as an alternative to institutionalized celebrations of poetry with the goal of expanding preconceived notions of what poetry is or means. My favourite response to the poetry on NationalPoetryMonth.ca is “this isn’t poetry!”
We publish one work each day in April for a total of 30 poems/pieces. I use the opportunity to discover potential contributors to Experiment-O.comand to our essay series. This year I want to focus on asemic writing to feature a type of visual poetry that is less well known.
AngelHousePress, established in 2007, publishes raw talent, ragged edges and rebels through its limited edition chapbook series (final chapbooks spring 2019), NationalPoetryMonth.ca, an annual celebration of poetry in April, Experiment-O.com, an annual online PDF magazine that comes out in the autumn, an online essay series and a podcast, the Small Machine Talks. Please visit AngelHousePress.com for more information, and to sign up to our mailing list to stay informed about calls for submission and activities.
