Interview with Brooklyn Magazine

  I sat down at Kasia’s Diner on the corner of N 9th & Bedford for some chatty straight talk with Nicole Disser from Brooklyn Magazine. Later they sent a photographer over & took photos of the books. The mag was nice enough to put BAP in some good company with Badlands Unlimited, Birds LLC, & […]

Anselm Berrigan & Jonathan Allen at Lu Magnus

I have a book from the Flying Guillotine Press with gauze webbing hanging from the […]

Wall Street Journal Interviews Joe Pan and Brooklyn Arts Press

So Lizzie Simon from the Wall Street Journal interviewed me about BAP (click to see), which was a strangely stress-free experience. I met her at El Beit cafe and she told me how beautiful our books were and we talked and she scribbled down notes and I made her laugh a few times and when […]

Interview with Best American Poetry blog

  Today the Best American Poetry blog published an interview I did with Nin Andrews. It’s good to have so much to talk about with regards to BAP and my own work now. So much of my time is spent plodding along in the writerly dark, so to speak, keeping things moving, pushing myself in […]

We took Brooklyn Arts Press to the AWP (Association of Writers & Writing Programs) Conference for the first time this year. It was held in […]
