“There is something that feels positively liberating about Fuck Art, Let’s Dance. Honestly it probably has to do with the dance. A lot of artists work tirelessly and ought to get some serious dancing in to keep their minds fresh, feet nimble. Such things are quite common throughout the universe. Unfortunately art rarely gets the red rug kind of treatment. Plenty of artists live out on the fringes of things hoping for the absolute best for their passion.

Fuck Art, Let’s Dance does exactly that. They understand that good art takes time and time has become a commodity sadly. Issues are released bi-annually and they are something to get completely lost in for they sprawl out into the endless days and nights. Everything within their hallowed Internet pages brims with confidence. Beach Sloth enjoys this kind of DIY focus. Good art finds a way, always…

Subject material for submissions has one rule: there are no fucking rules. Lots of things are more than welcome. This is definitely one of the sweeter types of things, particularly as collections/volumes/etc. tend to go for a unifying theme. Although that approach has benefits it can sort of create a hermetic kind of style where nothing else is allowed to come through. By emphasizing the weird and offbeat, FALD creates a welcoming space even if it is online.”

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
