Great developments are underway here in Cleveland this week.
First off, join John Dorsey, David Oprava, and the staff of Hydeout Press for a discussion of new press projects, promotions, and book announcements this Friday at 2pm EST on the Joe Milford Poetry Show. We’ve got a special announcement for people who have preordered “Twenty Poems about Girls” that we’ll be sharing live on the air. John will be giving a reading from his upcoming work as well as other projects in development.
Also, Hydeout Press just made a new acquisition:
That’s a Chandler and Price Old Style platen press, 8×12 model 280. It will be used in several new initiatives over the upcoming months, including one to share this resource with a university poetry center to facilitate projects by creative writing students and MFA programming. More details to follow soon.
A very special thanks goes out to Ryan at Welden Tackle, the gentleman who sold us this monstrosity at a massive discount over other buyers in order to keep this press running, out of the scrap heap, and accessible to students and the arts community. Ryan is a hell of a nice guy. If you need fishing tackle or supplies, please consider calling Welden at their Brunswick location.
Keep tuned for more upcoming projects and announcements over the following weeks!
