Sept 30: A Celebration of Pedlar Press

I’m delighted to have joined the Meet the Presses Collective, an all-volunteer collective devoted to promoting micro, small and independent literary presses. Their next online event for Fall 2021 in lieu of an in-person Indie Literary Market will be a celebration of Pedlar Press and a conversation with founder Beth Follett. Check out the details below!

As Pedlar Press winds up publishing new work at the end of 2021, author and editor Alayna Munce will speak with founder, Beth Follett, about persevering with joy and courage through changes in the literary world, and the twenty-five-year legacy of one of Canada’s most consistently impressive independent publishers of contemporary works of poetry, prose, and graphic novels.”
