The ULA's temporary stagnation shows what happens to a group which becomes too dependent on one aspect, such as a web site. To counteract this dependence I'm restarting our snail-mail PR campaign which was so successful in our first days.
To supplement the arguments on this blog I'll be mailing colorful well-reasoned one-page arguments to a variety of lit-establishment targets-- to let them know the ULA campaign is ongoing. Our purpose as a group-- the reason the ULA was created-- is to lobby for the cause of underground writers. For instance: What good are Lefty magazines like The Nation if they give attention and publicity only to conglomerate monopoly writers from the MonoClass? We need to call them on their hypocrisy.
I plan to issue these mailings monthly. They will be strictly external to the ULA; part of our activist campaign. Mailings designed to strengthen the ULA's unity are the arena now of others in the ULA, including new Director Patrick King.
Any demi-puppet or Overdog can ensure receiving the new broadsides by sending $5 cash (or check payable to K. Wenclas) for 12 issues to me at PO Box 42077, Philadelphia PA 19101. (This covers my expenses.) Include a name or title and address-- whether for yourself or for any publishing/literary/academy person or office you want to receive them. The outbursts will name names and are guaranteed to be exciting.
ULA ACTION UNIT
This is a new team within the ULA team. Its purpose will be to generate focused pro-ULA propaganda, through snail mail or e-mail, on a consistent basis. Other ULAers are welcome to sign on board. For now this unit has one member: me.
The renewed noise is only beginning.
