Before I comment, I first have to stop swallowing my tongue. Why have I just now found MFA, but, much more importantly, why have I just now found Peter Fulton--the man and the poetry of the man? If your poems from Flying Stones have not been recognized for the finest of poetry that comes uncontrived, but has been lived so fully, it seems to break out of the pages, and, like the sculptor, fly away. These words have flown into both my brain and my heart. I cannot thank you enough. A real human being and real poetry and art and music all rolled into these few pages! You are a gift to me, a man of words that both shine and fly. If you ever want a small press, like mine, to publish ANYTHING you write, please get in touch. I am truly overwhelmed, as you can probably tell.
My web (site) has been waiting for you to inadvertently fly into my sticky strands - I don't intend to let you flit off. You and your poetry are brilliant liquid mercury studded with molten gems and magical minerals: heart-beating alchemy. Of course I want you to publish my work and I want to publish yours. The way I see it, there are no small presses, only publishers who want to reach a specific subset of sensibilities. (In my case, I'm looking for original multimedia collaborations.) Would you be interested in considering my poems and photographs from my escapes to Saint Petersburg Russia, Swansea Wales and the woods of New Hampshire? I'm not so interested in publication per se (I having a standing book offer for another book from my publisher in Swansea Wales), as much as having you write a preface and give me ongoing feed-back as my colleague, editor and friend. For example, I'm thinking of breaking the rules in adding some narrative - not about myself (left to the poems) - but the circumstances. Have you tried this? I also have a 20 minute verse drama that won first place in a festival of verse dramas in Wales two years ago called "waking dolphins" and a short drama called "ordination" that is yet unperformed, both of which need publication. Should we continue by email? email@example.com
