Out of Everywhere ...  again!

Nearly twenty years ago Reality Street published its first best-seller: the anthology of linguistically innovative poetry by women in North America and the UK Out of Everywhere, edited by Maggie O'Sullivan.

Now the press announces plans to publish a sequel in 2015. Edited this time by Emily Critchley,
Out of Everywhere 2 will explore whether "women's experimental writing" is still a valid and necessary category after all this time. And it will sample poets who have come to prominence since 1996. A total of 40 contributors include: Sascha Akhtar, Andrea Brady, Emily Critchley, Amy De’Ath, Carrie Etter, Heather Fuller, Susana Gardner, Elizabeth James & Frances Presley, Myung Mi Kim, Carol Mirakove, Marianne Morris, Jennifer Moxley, Redell Olsen, Kaia Sand, Susan Schultz, Eleni Sikelianos, Zoe Skoulding, Juliana Spahr, Catherine Wagner, Carol Watts, among others.

A CD of audio work will be released to accompany the book.

You can't order the book yet - but to celebrate the upcoming publication we are offering copies of the original
Out of Everywhere at the bargain price of £5 + p&p.

Visit our sale page to get your hands on a copy of this poetry classic at well under half the normal retail price.
