Meet the Presses announces its Fall 2013 Indie Literary Market

Meet the Presses is pleased to present its fall 2013 Indie Literary Market on Saturday, November 16, from noon to 4:30 pm at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Street) in Toronto.

The Indie Literary Market is a curated event that showcases about 25 exciting literary presses and magazines, from some of the tiniest of micropresses to some of the biggest small presses, selling books, leaflets, broadsides, chapbooks, zines, journals, CDs, and more. The Market gives the general public an opportunity to peruse — and buy — some of the best of Canadian literature, much of which isn’t available in the ever-dwindling bookstores.

The afternoon will also mark the announcement of the winner of the prestigious bpNichol Chapbook Award, which earns $2,000 for its author and $500 for its publisher.

So mark November 16 on your calendar. If you run a small literary press or magazine, and would like Meet the Presses to consider you for a table at this event, please send a detailed note to by early September — let us know what you publish and why you publish, and provide any links that will help us become familiar with your publications. You may just receive an invitation to take part in the Fall 2013 Indie Literary Market.
