Last night at The Foundry & Tipcake hotladies

Openned / Land for Lajee Fundraiser. We heard around fifteen poets read in three-minute slots, all relevant & some intentionally so, & we saw a short film about the Aida camp & heard some short talks about the camp and the Lajee Centre.  We were taken at our stations by the reverie wherein Steve Willey psyches himself up with Cobbing glossolalia strapping on his brown shinpads for another full day's football against the camp children.  There was an auction and other stuff.

The only thing that didn't make me fucking ecstatic was the sense of a special occasion.  Openned & other itinerary bezoars, like The Blue Bus, Utter!, Xing the Line, Penned in the Margins, Chlorine, and the stuff which happens in Cambridge, should regularly schedule mixtures of poetry and direct prosaic political and activist-administrative address.  New nights too.  If you want concrete suggestions, backchannel me.

Also, in a limited edition of 20, 'Recovery', by Jonty Tiplady, 28pp, LARGE FORMAT, roller skates on the cover, 17 all new unpublished or unemailed out poems, adult themes, Nicholas Lyndhurst, ghetto smurfs, £5, cash, or cheque payable to JT Iplady at F16, 75 Montpelier Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 3BD.

OK.

Maybe you should set up a night which combines poetry and direct political action more regularly. Its a good idea.

That was Steve by the way

In fact maybe you should set up a night full stop. That would be a start. I don't think it is the lack of concrete ideas which is stopping anyone from going ahead and organizing something but the unwillingness and inability for people to commit the effort it takes to implement such ideas. Plus to build such an event and make it successful you probably need to make pretty good connections with both the/a poetry scene and meet a good and reliable set of people connected to the cause you wish to bring into dialogue with the poetry. It has taken me three years to get the confidence and the conviction to put on one event of this sort. I want to do more in the future. Not many people that I know of have these connections set up between poets and activists. You and Sean might be two people I can think of who do.

Hi there,

I'm really quite interested in getting hold of a copy of Cuntomatic, if you can manage it. I'm Stephen and it looks like a very nice book. I'll pay, I'll trade, I'll do almost anything. I have a blog - http://afterlights.blogspot.com. I have a little chapbook of concrete poetry. I love cut up writing. The word cunt thrills me no end. A copy of Cuntomatic would go down spendidly!

Best wishes to you and please give blood.
