DIY Poetry Publishing Cooperative

Copycat the cartoonists

For poets DIY may seem like a new phenomenon (though plenty of our forebears "privately printed" their first books, including Whitman, Pound, & Merrill to name three masculine examples), but for zinesters and especially comix artists, DIY has long been a primary (and preferred) method of publication.

So check out Jessica Abel's terrific Art Babe site for some great info on making & selling comics--and think about ways to adapt her comics-specific advice to your own projects. Her sections on Making Minicomics and Selling Comics will probably be the most useful for you (but it's all good stuff).
