poetry on vinyl

March 24, 2017

At the intersection of two passions — poetry and vinyl — Fonograf Editions is carving itself a small, bold niche. Calling itself “a vinyl record-only poetry press,” Fonograf is based out of Portland, Oregon, and is an arm of Octopus Books. (We mentioned Octopus a few months back in a post about Octopus editor Mathias Svalina’s Dream Delivery Service.)

Hoping to produce two to three albums each year, Fonograf already has a catalog of two: Conflation by Rae Armantrout and Aloha/irish trees by Eileen Myles.

For more, visit the Fonograf Editions website and Facebook page and also see the article in the Omaha World-Herald.

Armantrout reading

Currently a Visiting Writer in the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing & Poetics program at the University of Washington Bothell, poet Rae Armantrout will offer a reading from her new collection, Partly: New and Selected Poems, 2001 – 2015 (Wesleyan University Press) on Friday, September 16, 2016 – 7:00pm at The Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle.

Awarded a Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award and Guggenheim Fellowship, among others, Armantrout is cited most often as a founding member of the West Coast group of Language poets. Ben Lerner (author most recently of The Hatred of Poetry) interviewed Rae Armantrout for the Winter 2011 BOMB.
