At the south end of Cherokee Street, tucked in the woven pattern of a record store, bakery, and the occasional Mexican restaurant sits a venue with a large open window and a stenciled sign that reads “Blank Space 2847 Cherokee.”
Peer through the large windows and you’ll see just that – a few chairs scattered around, a large wall of books and some boxes filled with vinyl.
Eric Woods is Owner and Founder of The Firecracker Press at 2838 Cherokee Street. He's a visual artist, not a poet. But he's been teaming up with poets for most of the nine years he's been open, mostly, he says "out of necessity."
