Bareknuckle Poet 12 monthly stats

Brentley Frazer : January 5, 2016 10:12 am : Bareknuckle Blog

bkp-stats

In the interests of transparency, and because we are an open access journal, we share with our readers and patrons the yearly reader statistics of Bareknuckle Poet.

In the past 12 months we have had 1279985 hits, which breaks down as follows.

We served 358002 pages to a total of 132966 unique (individual) readers.

That’s about 400 readers a day (average).

In the scheme of things, we are micro-plankton swimming with groupers and whales, but really, not bad for an independent journal publishing for the love of literature.

Bareknuckle Poet Anthology In The News

Brentley Frazer : January 4, 2016 9:25 am : Bareknuckle Blog

BKPAnthologyvol012015Dear Readers

Our first annual anthology 2015 received itself a mention in The Australian newspaper’s ‘best books of 2015’ annual wrap in the Weekend Review on December 19 2015:

Bareknuckle Poet, an anthology edited by Brentley Frazer and AG Pettet, is beautifully produced and packed with punchy reading, worth the price alone for two prose pieces, Currawongs by Martin Edmond and Dollarbirds by Melissa Ashley.
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/books-of-the-year-gerald-murnane-drusilla-modjeska-elizabeth-harrower/news-story/952137accb5beac504aa1c7caaed7949

The following week the anthology received a third of a page review; an excerpt:

Another, not unrelated, theme running through much of this anthology is a sort of fin-de-siecle decadence, spilling over at times into contemporary grunge. There are 26 pages of Baudelaire translated by Jim Nisbet and ­recurrent images of the young Arthur Rimbaud, drawn (very effectively) by Julian ­Peters. There are also several stories and poems where the sexual dimension — and the ­alcohol — are very much up-front. Mandy Beaumont’s story And They Wanted Us to Love Them is a memorable example.

Note that in the above review that the Cultural Gatekeeper who wrote it rapped our knuckles for a misspelling. We apologise for that and other errors that you may (hopefully not) notice in the first thirty copies that were sent out. We rushed out a print run to have copies available in time for our Howl anniversary reading at Avid Reader on October 06 2015. As luck would have it, the reviewer here ended up with one of those copies. All errors have since been corrected and editions that were discovered to contain errors have a ‘publishers note’ insert. If you have one of those super rare editions and you would like a corrected edition, return to it us and we will replace it for you.

Stay tuned for some fantastic Bareknuckle Books releases in 2016.

Thanks for reading

PURCHASE

The first annual Bareknuckle Poet print anthology. This issue contains a selection of writers published here at Bareknuckle Poet during the past twelve months. It is NOT a ‘best of’ . . . it is a selection, and it was tough making that selection. If we included every author that we publish in the online journal every year (as much as we would love to), the print anthology would weight about forty kilos. Included in this first issue is a section dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the first reading of Howl by Allen Ginsberg. A. G. Pettet & Bareknuckle Books have organised a global celebration (check the details here) and we are publishing a selection of the poets who are reading at this event, alongside the full text of HOWL (under license) and a poem given to us by Gary Snyder himself. For those unfamiliar with the history of Howl and the Six Gallery read

AUTHORS: L. Ward Abel, Robert Adamson, Venero Armanno, Melissa Ashley, Lisa Marie Basile, Mandy Beaumont, Sally Breen, MTC Cronin, B. R. Dionysius, Maria C. Dominguez, Martin Edmond, Michael Farrell, Toby Fitch, Brentley Frazer, Claire Gaskin, Allen Ginsberg, Matt Hetherington, Eleanore Jackson, Anthony Lawrence, Alexandra McCallum, Tim McGabhann, Laura Jean Mckay, Corey Mesler, Reg Mombassa, A. G.

BAREKNUCKLE POET JOURNAL OF LETTERS VOLUME 001 PRINT ANTHOLOGY 2015 – UPDATE

Bareknuckle Poet : September 10, 2015 1:17 pm : Bareknuckle Blog, News

howl-avid-bkpCompiling Volume 001 2015 of our annual print anthology has proven a monumental task. We found ourselves sidetracked for awhile with our ed-in-chief Brentley Frazer disappearing from HQ to write and record a commissioned poem for the Brisbane Poetry Map. Also, our first collected poet A. G. Pettet read from his book and chaired a pop-culture panel at The Brisbane Writers Festival on the weekend. Of course the whole Bareknuckle Books team were there to support him. Thanks to everyone who came along.

Did you notice that! We got sidetracked again, while talking about why we’ve been sidetracked.

Back to the anthology. The first in our annual series will be outstanding. Not only will it contain a selection of thirty incredible writers we have published in the journal over the past twelve months, it will also contain a special section edited by A. G. Pettet. In early October 2015, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first public reading by Allen Ginsberg of his timeless HOWL at Six Gallery, San Francisco 1955, A. G. Pettet has co-ordinated a global celebration. There will be readings in New York, Boulder, Paris, London, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Launceston. The special section will contain a selection of work from the poets who are reading globally and . . . wait for it . . . we have attained the rights from the estate of Allen Ginsberg and The Wiley Agency UK to publish HOWL, in the journal, in it’s entirety!

Volume 001 in paperback will be available soon . . . stay posted.

Thanks for reading
