LOST & FOUND: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative

CUNY Professor Ammiel Alcalay has spearheaded a pretty ingenious idea, the the Lost & Found publication project, which is currently announcing it's first batch of booklets. It's an exciting project that looks set to bring into print materiel that would otherwise be too costly to make.

They're celebrating their inaugural series this Tuesday at the CUNY Grad Center in NYC, details below.

The Amiri Baraka/Edward Dorn Correspondence
The Kenneth Koch/Frank O’Hara Letters: Selections

Lost & Found is a publication project emerging from archival and textual scholarship done by students at The Graduate Center, with the primary focus on writers falling under the rubric of the New American Poetry. Since accessibility to archival material proposes alternative, divergent and enriched versions of literary and cultural history, the Lost & Found initiative takes the New American rubric writ large, including the affiliated and unaffiliated, precursors and followers.
