Make Contact: Circulating Small and Micro Press Poetry in Canada (ACCUTE 2015; due November 1)

updated: 
Friday, October 31, 2014 - 11:13am
full name / name of organization: 
ACCUTE 2015 (University of Ottawa)

The history of small and micro presses in Canada is, in part, an exploration of creative modes of distributing literature. Many of these presses extend the modernist injunction to "make it new" to modes of publishing and to modes of distribution. In Cerberus (1952), the first title from Contact Press and a pivotal publication in Canadian small press, Raymond Souster declares, "the big thing is to get it across, 'make contact'" (75). Making contact for small and micro presses often requires navigating the space between writer and reader in new and creative ways. We seek papers that ask how small and micro press literature has been distributed, historically and in our contemporary moment.

eighteen luscious, scrumptious flavors-
chocolate, lime and cherry,
coffee, pumpkin, fudge-banana,
caramel cream and boysenberry,
Rocky road and toasted almond,
Butterscotch, vanilla dip,
Butter-brickle, apple ripple,
Coconut and mocha chip,
Brandy peach and lemon custard,
Each scoop lovely, smooth, and round,
Tallest ice-cream cone in town,
Lying there (sniff) on the ground.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

voy•age
ˈvoi-ij/
noun:
1. a long journey involving travel by sea or in space.
Synonyms: trip, expedition, excursion, tour

There is no mistaking the physical exploration entailed in this simple definition of a voyage, and yet the word's Latin origin, viaticum, or "provisions for a journey," calls to mind far more than embarkment alone. The origin of the word itself invites us to consider the predicate needs at our own or others' starting point(s): How will we prepare ourselves? What will allow us, inspire us, or force us to leave our present situation in pursuit of something beyond our realm of experience?
