Meet many of the smallest, newest, and best literary presses, magazines, and producers in the Northwest. This one-day AWP-offsite event showcases the many presses that don’t have the staff or means to be at the longer AWP three-day book fair.

Twenty six of the Northwest’s many of the smallest, newest, and best literary presses, magazines, and producers have been selling books all day and are ready to cut loose and relax!
