Douglas Blazek (born 1941) is a Polish-American poet and editor who published the literary chapbook Ole and was proprietor of the Open Skull Press.
He is one of the founders of the Mimeo Revolution, a literary movement that sprang up concurrently with The Beats. He was instrumental in bringing non-establishment poets such as Charles Bukowski into the limelight by publishing their work.
As described in the introduction to James DenBoer's A Bibliography of the Published Works of Douglas Blazek: 1961-2001 (Glass Eye Books, 2003), Blazek is noteworthy for his prolific early period (1964-1978), followed by an extended hiatus. Between 1978 and 2009, Blazek published only one book, but this was also a time of intense creativity, as the poet focused on rewriting all his previously published work. The first book-length results of this labor, Aperture Mirror and Gutting Cats in Search of Fiddles were published in 2012 by Edition Muta with more titles forthcoming.
