What is The Guerilla Poetics Project?

The long answer to that can be found in the Guerilla Poetics Project manifesto.

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.
