The first issue of Insert Press' FOLD MAGAZINE will be released in January 2007.

Insert Press is edited by Stan Apps and Mathew Timmons. Harold Abramowitz' chapbook Three Column Table is available, and chapbooks by Julien Poirier, Ara Shirinyan, and Dan Richert are forthcoming.

FOLD's first issue will be titled Appropriate Text. The emphasis of this issue will be on essays that discuss the use of borrowed, stolen, plundered, reused, retooled and/or sampled texts to create literature. Our intent is to analyze the work of writers who use text which they did not originate and do not own or own only by virtue of appropriation. Such work calls into question the ideals of authorship, origination, sincerity, parody, and intellectual property; we are interested in creative analysis of these ideals.

Other works (poetry, prose, fiction) which cast a revealing light on the status of language as an owned object will also be considered.

Submissions by email should be sent to BOTH and

Submissions by "snail-mail" should be sent to Stan Apps, 4453 Kingswell Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90027.

All submissions must be received by September 15, 2006.
