Submissions are open for Beir Bua Journal – Visual Poetry.

I am excited for this sub window!

I see so many great images on Twitter that opening the journal was the obvious step. 

Handmade my Michelle Moloney King. A vispo zine/concertina book.

I LOVE vispo. I can read it as slowly or fast as I wish, read it at break time in the staffroom or read it during as part of bedtime in place of picture books. My own little one makes vispo and the journal published him. I even made my own vispo zine.

I think being a mother, working in teaching, being a poet, and running an indie press…I can always make an asemic piece. I can learn about mark-making, the history and context of vispo in a dual manner of being a mother and artist.

Anyway, the details are below / Michelle
