The Pocketry Almanack
A poetry journal for emerging and aspiring poets who haven’t been published in a literary journal and have been rejected multiple times by literary journals. The pocket-sized compendium comes out twice a year and features poems by up to six different poets as well as original artwork.

Pocketry Presents A Poetry Podcast
Pocketry Presents is the brand new poetry podcast that finds out what goes on in poet's minds and just how they deal with writer's block. Host, Indrani Perera, brings you interviews with established poets about their creative process as well as getting published, performing and winning awards.

You'll also hear some of the unusual words and intriguing stories that have been bartered for copies of The Pocketry Almanack.
