Commune Editions publishes poetry and other writings antagonistic to capital and the state. In the struggle against these entrenched adversaries, poetry is no replacement for concrete forms of action: strikes, blockades, occupations and riots, as well as the meetings, houses, libraries, and shared resources that enable them. But poetry can be a voice for these activities and their companion. Like Kanellos, the riot dog of Athens, Commune Editions accompanies the movements of the streets, providing support and strangeness, and perhaps, on occasion, biting the leg of a cop threatening a comrade.

Juliana Spahr edits the book series Chain Links with Jena Osman and the collectively funded Subpress with nineteen other people and Commune Editions with Joshua Clover and Jasper Bernes. With David Buuck she wrote Army of Lovers, a book about two friends who are writers in a time of war and ecological collapse and also the symposium Beyond Oakland. She has edited with Stephanie Young A Megaphone: Some Enactments, Some Numbers, and Some Essays about the Continued Usefulness of Crotchless-pants-and-a-machine-gun Feminism (Chain Links, 2011), with Joan Retallack Poetry & Pedagogy: the Challenge of the Contemporary (Palgrave, 2006), and with Claudia Rankine American Women Poets in the 21st Century (Wesleyan U P, 2002). With Joshua Clover, she has twice organized somewhat free schools, the 95 cent Skool (summer of 2010) and the Durruti Free Skool (summer of 2011), written on politics, on manifestos, applied for a job at the Poetry Foundation, and organized, with Chris Chen too, the conference Poetry and/or Revolution.

Joshua Clover is working on a book about forms of struggle, Of Riot (Verso. 2016); his book of poetry, Red Epic, will be published in 2015. He has collaborated on poetry, critical writing, and conferences with Chris Nealon, Chris Chen, Aaron Benanav, Annie McClanahan, Louis Schwartz, Jasper Bernes, and Juliana Spahr; with the lattermost two, he edits Commune Editions.

Jasper Bernes is a lecturer in the English Department at UC Berkeley. He is the author of Starsdown (2007). Recent poems and essays can be found in Modern Language Quarterly, The American Reader, Lana Turner, Los Angeles Review of Books and Endnotes. He is presently at work on a long poem, We Are Nothing and So Can You, a selection of which he published as a chapbook in 2012. With Juliana Spahr and Joshua Clover, he edits Commune Editions.
