After the Battle of Kingsway, the Bees

Lovely to get a mention for After the Battle of Kingsway, the bees in Oscar Marten’s interview with rob mclennan:

I often mail chapbook handouts to book fairs in other parts of North America as well, something I’ve been doing for a decade or so now. I sent fifty copies of a new Renée Saklikar above/ground press chapbook as handout at the recent Buffalo Small Press Book Fair, and fifty copies of the new lary timewell above/ground press chapbook to Louisiana, for Marthe Reed to hand out at the New Orleans Poetry Festival.
