Durable Goods and the University of Buffalo's "Little Magazines" Archive
By some stroke of luck, the University of Buffalo's Poetry Collection received a few copies of Durable Goods. This prompted Brenda Battleson to contact me about placing the entire Durable Goods collection in their "Little Magazines" archives. If you don't know about this collection then you are missing out on something amazing. They store over 5,000 different magazines from all over and in varying styles and content. Some of the images above are covers from their collection. This is a very special honor for me to be able to have the writers I feature have their work stored in an esteemed collection at a university. It is a great opportunity to be read by so many different audiences than one might have access to.
I want to take this time to thank Brenda Battleson and Michael Basinski for all the hard work and dedication they put into gathering up the world's poetry and putting it in an easy place to find. They also have a William Carlos William collection that will knock your socks off. Please visit the site below for more information about UB Poetry Collections. You won't be sorry you did.
