CROWDS FOR POETRY?
I am trying to join the 21st century. Hence, I am watching closely some attempts at crowd-funding for poetry projects, partly because of the first item in the following update below to my Bought Poetry List. It still seems to me that for crowd-funding to succeed there has to be crowds. That's been a problem--this lack of crowds--for poetry, notwithstanding Horseless Press' recent success. But I am delighted by their succcess and for now will focus on saying Congratulations!
Now, let's buy Poetry! Here's what I've done recently:
