‘Certain Trees’ concludes Avant-Folk by reflecting on the socio-creative implications of distribution within the small press networks examined in the previous chapters. Returning to Lorine Niedecker, the book’s Coda discusses an exhibition organised by Simon Cutts and Erica Van Horn, Certain Trees, that tacitly reaffirms the extended legacy of Niedecker and Jargon Society within the broader small press milieu covered in Avant-Folk. ‘Certain Trees’ also finds an apposite analogy for the ‘happy distribution’ of small press publications in John Bevis’s artists’ books on bird song and answers the questions initially raised in the introduction regarding the possibility of a remote, ‘elsewhere community’ of poets that remain united through amity, collaboration, and the complex infrastructures of small press networks.

Keywords:   distribution, sociopoetic, small press networks, John Bevis, bird song
