john martone poetry projects   


 began in 1987 as an extension of correspondence among poets. Over 100 numbers have appeared, originally in a simple 8.5/11 side-stapled format. During     these fifteen years, the range of formats has grown, but the impulse has remained to provide a meeting place for exiles. The current print form reaches upwards     of     100 correspondents in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Japan, Korea, and Slovenia. Poets represented include Bob Arnold ° Ed Baker ° Michael Basinski °         MJ Bender ° Cid Corman ° Simon Cutts ° Larry Eigner ° Theodore Enslin ° Clive Faust ° Robert Fitterman ° Bob Grumman ° Gary Hotham ° Stefan Hyner °     Karl Kempton ° Robert Lax ° David Levi Strauss ° John Levy ° Rupert Loydell ° Giovanni Malito ° Lissa McLaughlin ° David Miller ° Peter Money ° Barbara     Moraff ° Frank Samperi ° GeorgeQuasha ° F.J. Seligson ° John Vieira ° Phyllis Walsh ° Scott Watson    

In November, 2005, tel-let moved to an online format.
