Hi, i'm derek beaulieu. My writing is dedicated to exploring the blurred borders between poetry and graphic design; fiction and streetsigns -- plus i've been publishing small editions of my own writing and the work of writers internationally for over 20 years.
In 2014 i was named Calgary's poet laureate, an honour bestowed on me in recognition of my community service and writing -- and i have continued the pace since then with public readings almost every two weeks in calgary, canada and internationally.
I've written over 20 volumes of poetry, prose, visual fiction and criticism including a, A Novel (paris: jean boite editions, 2017) and konzeptuelle arbeiten (bern: editions taberna kritika, 2017). A full list of my publishing to date is available at my online home alongside PDFs of most of my books, updates on news and events, and much more.
Thank you -- your support will help me continue to create and publish my work and will allow me to continue to publish editions of risk-taking poets from around the world.

Collected Fiction of bpNichol - a special project
$19.88 or more per month
I am embarking on a very special project -- the assembling, preparation and introduction of a volume of bpnichol’s collected fiction. This collection — which has the approval of Nichol's estate and a publisher confirmed -- will bring together, in a single volume, all of bpNichol's novels and short-stories.


More on bpNichol (1944-1988) can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrie_Phillip_Nichol


Nichol's novels -- ANDY / FOR JESUS LUNATICK (Coach House, 1969), JOURNAL (Coach House, 1978), EXTREME POSITIONS (Longspoon, 1981), STILL (Pulp, 1983) -- and his short story collections NIGHTS ON PROSE MOUNTAIN (grOnk, 1969) and CRAFT DINNER (Aya, 1978) -- are all out of print & available only as rare and collectible editions. 


This new volume would return all of his fiction to print, provide bibliographical information and a critical, readerly introduction to the volume; placing Nichol's novels in context with with poetic, publishing and community work. It will be a valuable addition to discussions on contemporary fiction and experimental prose in Canada -- and be a great add to the classroom.


My editing of The Collected Fiction of bpNichol is not supported by federal or provincial grants -- all support comes from you -- the readers and lovers of Nichol's work.


Supporters at this level will receive a copy of the book when completed and published --  will be thanked in the printed edition's "editor's acknowledgements" -- and will be provided with a yearly subscription to no press (more on no press here: https://derekbeaulieu.wordpress.com/no-press/)
