Hi intrepid literary fan,
This literary [slash] graffiti press is the result of a lot of hard work from a posse of people invested in getting the words of all artists, from all backgrounds, onto the streets / lamps / space ships / farm houses / and mailboxes of every habitation. It was born out of the belief that fancy degrees, gatekeepers, and connections shouldn’t be the only way to get published. MMPP seeks to marry eccentricity, diversity, and merriment. Nothing wrong with having some fun.
One last thing: this is a labor of love from a lot of dedicated, tender, sensitive, smart, and wonderful people. But it is also a small nod to the happiest little buddy that ever walked the earth: Liono “Tater Tots” Cannarella. In the gloaming forest of despair after his death, I [me, Janie,] needed to figure out an outlet in which to funnel my energy. That funneling became the idea for Meow Meow Pow Pow, and that idea became this press, and then this press became a real thing. MMPP couldn’t exist without the unity and friendship from everyone on this masthead. And it also couldn’t exist if Liono didn’t first.
Happy writing, literary buddies. We like you and your words – just the way they are.
