PAP, or Public Access Poetry, was cobbled together for 2 seasons in 1978 and 1979 by The Poetry Project poets and all their bubbling-babble joyous addict crowd-lovers. They just got together and made a TV show: great cool. Heres Charles Bernstein reading all cut-up and confused. you can find the rest on the Poetry Project website HERE.
It’s been far too long since the last time artwork graced the walls of an NN event and we can’t think of a better way to break this dry-spell than with the work of Falmouth based illustrator, Rosalie Darien Jones.

A few of us have been working on some collaborative projects with Rosalie which will hopefully be coming to fruition early next year and we’re super excited for her to be exhibiting with us!
THERE ARE GOING TO BE SO MANY ZINES FOR SALE ON SATURDAY:
ones about Gods, ones about Spain and John Steinbeck, ones about peach-pitted finger fondling, ones about Lesbians, ones about dying in all manners, ones about Birds, probably at least five about Sex in all manners, Collaborative zines by insiders and outsiders, zine bundles, lone zines, pink zines, blue zines, green zines, black zines, and our new book, NN2, which is kind of a zine except a few more quid. We’re also handing out a free zine on the door for the first 40 people in, featuring work from all 6 of the NN poets (EVEN one sent through the airwaves from Figi by A.Prendergast!), designed by cut-up prodigy H. Levene.
We are also collecting for our travelling zine library, which will come with us on tour in the new year. If you have a penchant for zines or chapbooks which you think fit our bill, which is something like: art, photography, poetry, all of the above, crossing divides, philosophical hysterical daredevil notions, arguments with one’s self, pushing and pulling, hot sex, silent contemplation, weird wooded hooded deep soul, crazed holy writings, sequinned and shiny, muddy and gravelly, lashings of chutzpah, then we would love you to get involved and become a travelling zine superstar.
come along and talk to us on the night, or email a digi copy / your idea / ask for our address at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a copy of your precious, precious musings and WE’LL TAKE OVER THE WORLD together.
Making zines for saturdays neutral norway party and listening to jack halberstam talk about anarchy. Come and pick up a zine this weekend or if you are far away email us your address and we’ll put one in the post. Peace.
