Meet the Presses is curating a third Indie Literary Market for November 17 at the Tranzac Club in Toronto. Meet the Presses is an all-volunteer literary collective devoted to organizing public events showcasing books and chapbooks, magazines, recordings, and broadsheets produced by independent publishers of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. The collective has come together in the spirit of the original Meet the Presses events begun 28 years ago in Toronto by Stuart Ross and Nick Power.

The Indie Literary Market is an invitational event focused exclusively on things literary. It will provide an opportunity for the public to meet independent literary presses and make direct purchases of publications that may not be readily available (or available at all) in bookstores and other commercial outlets.

Participating chapbook presses include:

Baseline Press
Brick Books
Cactus Press
Coach House Books
Ferno House
