Publishers Behaving Badly

I got this note from a friend of mine yesterday and wanted to put it out there to warn other poets of this bad, bad behavior!


A couple hours after this was posted here and elsewhere, the publisher fixed the situation...


  1. Thanks Charlie! They've taken it down and apologized, said it was an accident, and still maintain their opinion that it won't hurt my publishing the poems or chapbook elsewhere. I hope so.

    It's funny though, I didn't get a response to my (heated) emails last night until 2:30 today. And within the half hour the poems were down. I don't know why that strikes me as odd, do you?

  2. You should be commended for doing such an important public service. It's so amazing to see that blogs and kindness can really help someone out!

    I'm truly envious of how you helped.
