A Bukowski Poetry Contest

Santa Rosa, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1999. Original broadside poster advertising a poetry contest for fans of post-Beat poet Charles Bukowski.

Issued by Bukowski's longtime publisher, Black Sparrow Press, in collaboration with Copperfield's Books and Music store, and the Sonoma County Independent. The contest was held to commemorate the iconic literary figure, and entries were personally judged by John Martin to determine those that captured the "spirit of Bukowski's writing." The poster itself reprints the Bukowski poem, "Wide and Moving."

9.5 x 12.5 inches, printed recto only in black and red. Near Fine.
