Poetry collection: “I just read it. Has me envisioning a sort of mid-west-adjacent close-to-the-heart family scenario surrounding the unfolding of a new love. Like if high school were populated by jaded 30-somethings” – Christian Alborz Oldham
Conceived in Berlin in 2014 by Zoe Darsee and Nat Marcus, the poetics of Tabloid Press are environmental; their ecology is social. The press’ first publication, an extended gossip column released on newsprint, was directed towards the whole interpersonal terrain in which the authors were dancing and writing.
In the following years, TABLOID has released over 10 publications, its activities widening to include hosting poetry workshops, designing books and clothing, and providing textual documentation for live performance. All the same, its focus has still been on the environment – textual, visual, sonic and social.
