Have you found a Guerilla Poetics Project broadside? Register it here.
But in a nutshell, the GPP was a guerilla marketing strategy that existed to bring the poetry of the underground and small press poets of the world to the mainstream.
We began by letterpress printing short poems on small cards, these are called broadsides.
Then the poets and operatives went into bookstores and libraries and covertly smuggled the broadsides into our target books.
The broadsides were found by unsuspecting readers.
The unsuspecting readers wondered who was behind such a marvelous surprise, and came to this web site to register their find.
They then discovered a new world of poetry and poets that they never knew existed.
See? Nothing to it.
