The One Pound Poem Project is a live verse endeavour originally begotten with a portable 1936 Remington Model 5. Its premise is simple — to bring the reader and writer together in a single moment of spontaneous creation and exchange.
Here is the general formula: 1 Topic + £1 + 1 Typewriter + Approx. 3mins typing time = 1 Poem. Cash Only. No Refunds.
Other poets have now also become irretrievably involved, including graphic novelists Gareth Brookes and Alexis Deacon, and poet J.J. Mitchell. Thus the One Pound Poet can now often be found roaming an art-filled market halls or taking to the streets, gathering pounds and pittances from other wanderers in search of verse.
Want to read some of the poems? I have a number of illustrated, hand-bound poetryzines available from the studio shop (where I have other illustrated goods as well). WATCH OUT for forthcoming volumes.
