Asheville BookWorks continues Vandercooked Poetry Nights reading series that offers the public the opportunity to print letterpress broadsides at the series events. The broadside printed at each event displays a poem written by the evening’s spotlighted poet.

Hosted by BookWorks founder and director Laurie Corral, and poet Landon Godfrey, the event is free and open to the public.

The print is available for the nominal price of $5 that evening and $20 after that evening. The reading is free to the public.


Sebastian Matthews lives with his family in Asheville. He is the author of a memoir and two books of poems. A few years back he curated a show for the Black Mountain College Museum + Art Center on the early work of collagist Ray Johnson. A collagist himself, Matthews is currently at work on a novel, a chapbook of poems and a set of poster-sized collages.

Broadside designer Paul Moxon is a studio letterpress printer publishing limited edition books and broadsides under the imprint Fameorshame Press. He is the author of Vandercook Presses: Maintenance, History and Resources, moderator of vandercookpress.info, and an itinerant letterpress instructor.
