An influential mimeograph created by di Prima and LeRoi Jones featuring some of the most important poets of the 20th Century.

For this reason, most copies were hand addressed or affixed with a mailing label and stamp, and folded for mailing. This issue features "Newark Black Survival Committee" by LeRoi Jones [Amiri Baraka], along with contributions from Jack Kerouac, Jack Spicer, Keith Wilson, Gary Synder, Stuart Perkoff, Rajkamal Chowdhury, Lorenzo Thomas, George Stanley, Frank O'Hara, Johannes Koenig, Yukio Matsuda, Yu Suwa, Atsushi Sekiguchi, Philip Lamantia, and David W.
