Small Press, Big Love: Publishing Poetry Collections with Independent Presses

As the publishing landscape transforms, and the writing population expands, the role of small presses is becoming increasingly more significant. Join us as we talk with the founding editors of three independent presses about the kind of work they’re looking for; the relationships they cultivate with their authors during the revision and publication process; their innovative strategies for getting poetry out in the world; and the ways they’re actively working to increase diversity. Panelists include Carissa Halston and Randolph Pfaff of Aforementioned, Liz Kay and Jen Lambert of Spark Wheel Press, and Enzo Silon Surin of Central Square Press.
