“Flarf is one of the closest conceptual aesthetic contexts for the book, and I totally understand that readers come to this as a Flarf-like book. I learned about Flarf during the early stages of this project, in 2004, and I immediately felt a sense of kindred spirit between this project and what the Flarf writers were doing.
But White Noise, I think, is guided by an aesthetic that’s different from Flarf. In White Noise, I’m trying to do more than ironically replicate the condition of language-saturation created by Internet discourse . . . ” Read the entire of the interview HERE.

Apostrophe Books is pleased to announce our current open reading period. We will be accepting manuscripts from January 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013.
While we define ourselves as a press that publishes innovative poetry, our prior titles represent a broad spectrum of approaches to contemporary poetry. To get a sense of the kind of work we are interested in as editors, just read our books by Catherine Meng, Johannes Göransson, Paul Foster Johnson, Jessica Baran, Gina Abelkop, and soon, Tony Trigilio. We invite those who are unfamiliar with our press to purchase copies of our titles before submitting to us.
We view Apostrophe Books as a series, so our book covers are designed to reflect a community of authors with shared values. We are distributed by SPD Books.
It can take anywhere from three to nine months for us to respond to submissions. If you are interested in submitting, please follow the guidelines below:
When submitting your manuscript, we request a reading fee of $15.00. This fee supports the rising printing costs of doing print runs that sustain distribution through SPD and sales through the usual online retailers. The fee also supports promotion of the press through our presence at book fairs and hosted readings at small art galleries.
