SPAM Press is a pamphlet machine whose recent and forthcoming publications include Daisy Lafarge's capriccio, Anna Danielewicz's An orca is way too big to attach, unless as a jpeg, Helen Charman's Daddy Poem and Calum Roger's Ports. With the aim of facilitating, promoting, reviewing and extending the reach of experimental poetics -- both live and on the page -- SPAM aims to Make Poetry Cool Again. Come by our stall to pick up recent publications and merch, sample some poems, or simply chat oscillations of affect in the virtual plaza.
