Ugly Duckling Presse officially announced the release of twenty pamphlets of commissioned essays on subjects close to UDP’s commitments — collective work, translation, performance, pedagogy, poetics, and small press publishing
— each offering a different approach to the pamphlet as a form of working in the present.
They have turned to the pamphlet for an engagement at once sustained and ephemeral, seeing in it — to use Lyn Hejinian’s words — “a sense of a newsgram, a sense of immediacy, unashamed of its staples.”
2020 pamphlet authors include:
DON MEE CHOI
KUNCI STUDY FORUM & COLLECTIVE
NICOLE CECILIA DELGADO
ADJUA GARGI NZINGA GREAVES
CLAUDIA LA ROCCO
A subscription to the 2020 Pamphlet Series is now available on the UDP website.
This programming will not affect the annual publication of the Emergency INDEX, the Eastern European Poets Series, or the Señal chapbook series for contemporary Latin American poetry in translation.
The Full Presse subscription in 2020 will include all 2020 pamphlets, all Past Futures titles, and all titles in the annual series.
