I Heart Nasty Little Press

Hello. I had a lovely package of poetry joy in the post from Nasty Little Press today. I ordered all their books. Yes all of them. They are not expensive and they are great. I know John Osborne and Salena Godden, I've seen Byron perform quite a lot, I like Luke Wright's stuff and I've been wanting to see Molly Naylor live for ages. The other two I decided to risk. I'd like it if they published a poetry pamphlet of mine. This is a blog love letter of sorts to them. I'll write more if I have to.

These are the pamphlets/ books I bought. You should buy them too. Also sign up for their mailing list, they send you Ration Books of poems in PDF form. I got one today. It had an ace poem by Rising/ Donut Press superstar Tim Wells. He once published one of my poems. I really should send him some more.
