The Paper Plant Press publishes broadsides, folders and chapbooks using handlaid recycled paper and letterpress printing in conjunction with current desktop publishing technologies.  From 1983-90, the Paper Plant bookstore sponsored a weekly open poetry series, and many of the chapbook authors emerged from that setting. Twenty published titles include award-winning alternative literature, a fine arts calendar, and a children’s book.  Many of our writers regularly feature as performance poets.  We seek to present an alternative take on the publishing process, looking for non-academic, even non-literary influences, in a search for poetry as an oral art, in a belief that poetry is an essential and multifarious expression of life.

     Above is the front page of The Paper Plant website, hosted by Netweed.  I have been making hand-laid paper since 1977, primarily for the purposes of letterpress printing and publishing.  Along the way, I became a papermaking instructor and a collector and teacher of book arts.  Below is a video of my teaching young children as part of Smart Start, a WRAL educational show.
