Launch of Spitting Out the Mother Tongue
Last night Wurm Press held a launch event to mark the publication of Christodoulos Makris' collection Spitting Out the Mother Tongue. Thanks to all who attended, and especial gratitude to Rob Brown and the Loft Bookshop, guest speaker Professor Harry Clifton, and of course to the poet himself. This couldn't have happened without your donations -- thanks again! Rewards are on their way...
To another anonymous donor!
A donation from the folks at Coracle Press (coracle.ie) brings us to 810 euro!
Thanks to the Hunters Moon Festival folk for their donation!
...with nearly three weeks to go. I had no idea there was such goodwill out there. Sean Lysaght made the final donation which took us up to 750.
Thanks to you all for your generosity, I'm really touched and glad that we can move on the autumn programme. If you're in Dublin, join is tonight for a celebratory glass of winefromabox (and, yeah, some really unusual and brilliant art from Veer authors: http://www.wurmimapfel.net/component/content/article/27-thursday-8th-september-event-with-veer-books)
If you would still like to donate, Wurm can still use your money. Here's where it would go, in order of priority:
--towards an honorarium for Phil Hall, who kindly agreed to read for what he could make from book sales
--towards the book publishing projects, so that we can capitalise them further and not rely so much on book sales
--towards the purchase of a good-quality portable recorder, so Wurm can share our events with the world on the website: www.wurmimapfel.net.
Wow, 94%, and 45 euro to go. Thanks to Anita Makri and Sergio Carnevale for their donations!
If you're in Dublin join us this evening: http://hellooperator.org/wordpress/?p=1029
