Pamphleteering used to be the task of politicians, not poets - but the poetry pamphlet is in revival, perhaps inevitably, given the number of poets now practicing, needing a cheap and simple publication platform. A fascinating article here, which I was drawn to by Litfest (whose Flax books are in many ways online pamphlets) - in the article Paul Maddern surveys the contemporary pamphlet scene and gives a bit of its history. Pamphlets and pamphlet publishers seem to gather wherever there is a vibrant poetry scheme. There's an interesting list of presses at the bottom of the article - and there's some others in my sidebar.
