March is Small Press Month


March, you may be surprised to learn, is Small Press Month. Given the struggles of the publishing industry, this is maybe more significant than ever before.

Small Press Month is a nationwide celebration highlighting the valuable work produced by independent publishers. Held annually in March, Small Press Month raises awareness about the need for broader venues of literary expression. From March 1st-31st, independent, literary events will take place from coast-to-coast, showcasing some of the most diverse, exciting, and significant voices being published today.

Indeed, that's Sherman! Just taught one of his stories ("Flight Patterns") that I think my students got a lot out of . . .

This is good to know. I'll keep my eye out for events.
