In 1969 Carol Gallup published the one-shot mimeo magazine Poet’s Home Companion, including a write-by-numbers poem template by Linda Schjehldahl, the ‘Poets’ Home Companion Handy Poem Writing Guide (For Authentic New York School Poems).’ Both editor and poet are difficult to locate in the history of the New York School without recourse to their respective then-husbands, Dick Gallup and Peter Schjeldahl, and this article—for the Contemporaries @ Post45 cluster on 'Little Magazines'—considers this erasure, as well as the gendering of labour and innovation in avant-garde communities.
