ANTHOLOGY OF 10 LOS ANGELES POETS

10 Los Angeles poets in denial of time’s existence, launch anthology anyway. 

This anthology includes 15 of my poems, including Elsewhere Scrims of Light, which appeared in Birds Piled Loosely, and appears as one of two poems to represent this anthology on Arctos Press's website

 

Press Release

I wrote the press releases for print & web publication.

The Book Release Reading was standing-room only. 

Here's what the web announcement looked like:

Book Layout & Design

I was also responsible for the book layout & design. That project started when someone in the group asked me if I had access to InDesign. I said yes. Great, Jim said, you're doing the page layouts and book design. 

He forgot to ask if I knew how to use InDesign.

Because I will learn the cuss out of anything I'm excited about, I spent the next month teaching myself InDesign—watched You Tube videos when I got stuck—and I designed the inside of the book.

Jim's wife, Tania Baban—a book artist & graphic designer—and he finalized the design and created the cover art. Holaday took the photo. Sarah edited. Jeanette and Brenda were the finance team. Almost all have set up promotional readings. A group effort.
