The Last Vispo Anthology does not need whatever small promotion our humble Mink Ranch can offer. It appears to be doing very well. If, however, any tenderfoots with an interest in visual poetry have not seen it, you might want to check out this valuable resource.
We believe Nico Vassilikis and Crag Hill have done exceptional work organizing and representing a global wave of visual poetry. Crag Hill, in particular, was for many years a force in concrete and visual poetry on the USA West Coast (he seems to now have removed himself to The Heartland). The various iterations of his Score publications are essential.
Here is the main link to the anthology site:
What might be particularly useful is this link to a list of visual poetry blogs and websites. Many visual poets participate in mail-art, so it is a great way to connect:
What is very notable is how male-dominated this list is. Being MinXus-Lynxus, we are very aware of all the impressive work being done by women. In fact, from our perspective, the majority of visual poets are women.
What up, guys?
Not another dead and walking dead white male academy forming, we hope.
