Small Presses, Big Ideas

Let me draw your attention to the excellent Speechification blog. Basically the blog posts bits from BBC’s Radio 4 that might otherwise have slipped past you. All the programmes are available as MP3s (I gather this has been sanctioned by Auntie Beeb?).

Recently I have enjoyed Small Presses, Big Ideas where Phill Jupitus looks at small poetry presses and, as the blog says, “he clearly revels in the tactile and sensory splendour of these little volumes and gets the poets to enthuse splendidly about this eccentric and essential world”.

One Thought on “Small Presses, Big Ideas

  1. Thanks for nice words. We don’t have Auntie’s explicit sanction (I wonder if it would be forthcoming?). We’re putting this stuff up because we love it and because we think some it ought to be permanently archived and better promoted. Speechification is an extension of the public service!
