Hey, this is a real question for anyone who might be paying some sort of attention to this blog.

I've been asked to help gather work from avant "outsider writers" from my area --Ohio, the greater MidWest--for inclusion in an anthology of writing which has a much larger focus.

When I say outsider writer think of folks outside of the academy, think street people, think outside blogdom, think outside of the mainstreams of consciousness, etc.

  1. Kate Zambreno isn't exactly outside the mainstream but she is wild and avant. She's in Akron. http://francesfarmerismysister.blogspot.com/

  4. hmmm... surely something more could be said about that "much larger focus" ... as well, something about the provenance of the anthology itself...

  5. Does it have to be specifically Ohio? For some reason I think of "Uncle" David Patton, from St. Louis, MO. Although - I dunno how he would feel about being called an "outsider." And maybe he's not. http://davidepatton.blogspot.com/
