save salt now

As many of you will know, poetry publisher, Salt, is feeling the effects of the economic downturn (or GFC if you prefer). Their three year funding from the English Arts Council ends this year. Spring sales were down nearly 80% on the previous year, and despite April's much improved trading, the past twelve months has left a budget deficit of over £55,000. So, Chris and Jen Hamilton-Emery are asking for some help - a small ask to save this important international poetry list.

JUST ONE BOOK

1. Please buy just one Salt book, right now. They don't mind from where, you can buy it from Salt or from Amazon, your local shop or megastore, online or offline. If you buy just one book now, you'll help to save Salt. Timing is absolutely everything here. They need cash now to stay afloat. You could go to their online store and help keep them going, or buy from your favourite online or real world bookshop.

Salt UK and International store

Salt US store

Say, you could buy one of my Salt books, if you don't have a copy.

Broken/Open

Screens Jets Heaven

Or any other of the fine poetry books from the list.
