Deborah Cohen on DIY music culture: also applies to poetry.

This is taken out of its original context (a review in THE ATLANTIC of books on indie rock by Kim Gordon and Jon Fine), but these words by Deborah Cohen can certainly apply to the more-seemingly--open poetry scene I encountered in 1998--and which began dying around 2003:
"....even the most inclusive DIY vision has its insiders and outsiders, its purists and compromisers, its pressures and its disenchanted pioneers."
