PB9 (The Covid Diaries)

By The Poetry Bus

description

PB9, The Covid Diaries, is a collection of poems from a broad spectrum of poets all written during lock down. We wanted to see how people were coping with Covid -19 and how it affected their work (if at all). We tapped into the virus Zeitgeist to see what was going on in poets' heads. We think it makes a fascinating and varied collection of poems. 

We need the money for production (@€100), printing (@ €300), and distribution costs (@300). We work for free and put in about €100 of our own money. Fund it is our sole means of raising the extra funds. In essence our funders are just ordering our books. Fund it has worked before, several times, and we pray it will work again. Indie poetry publishing in general, and PB in particular, offers a much needed alternative outlet for poets of every hue. We are inclusive, fair to all, and a vital blood stream for all types of poetry and poets.

A wife and husband team, this will be the 9th edition of PB mag. We have also published several individual as a well as collaborative collections. We publish quality work that demands to be read.

A million thanks for checking out this project, please fund if you can, you'll get a great read in return, and if you can't fund then please help by spreading the word. We need you!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Over the line, YOU did it, well done, and THANK YOU!

The PB9 cover is ready, (apart from the spine), the text is getting a few final tweeks, then when the Fundit money has cleared we can get the mag off to the printers and if all runs smooth (there must be a first time?) the mags will be winging their way to you before Christmas. 
We think it's a very special edition of PB, and we hope you love it.

Well, anything else is gravy now. But gravy is nice, gravy is insurance and possibly even something to be taken over into the next project.

This, though (smashing over the line in less than two days), is unprecedented. We are so happy, so relieved. Fundit is truly great, but it can be stressful, potentially disastrous, so to be home and dry so soon, has saved us much angst, thank you for that, and for enabling this edition of PB to exist!

We can't wait to send it to you.

Thanks to everyone in general and these people in particular...

Well, it looks like this mag is goping to happen. €660 pledged in just 36 hours, is an extraordinary response. You are amazing, we keep saying, amazing, but we are amazed!

So amazed that we wrote anonymouse instead of anonymous! Maybe Mickey was incognito?

Thank you, not just to the wonderful people listed below, but all those who pushed and shared and tweeted too.

As well as enabling us to produce PB9, this sort of support, kindness and encouragement, gives us the heart to keep going, to make more mags and more books. You are our lifeblood.
