The last few years has seen an explosion of new small presses and independent publishers around the country, publishing new and exciting fiction and poetry. If you are a keen reader and want to know more about the difference being a small press makes to how they work and what they publish, come along to hear from local small presses, Comma Press and If P then Q. The day will feature readings from two writers, Michelle Green from Comma Press and Holly Pester from If P then Q.


Small presses are often able to give much more attention to the physical characteristics of the book. Tom Jenks from zimZalla and James Davies from If P Then Q will be discussing and presenting poetry books as objects to give a creative insight into one of the distinctive characteristics of a small press.


If you think it’s fine to judge a book by its cover – and typeface, paper and page layout! – this is the event for you.

Tickets are £5 (£3 for early booking), and can be booked via Eventbrite by clicking here.

Reading and Being Read is organised by The Contemporary Small Press at the University of Westminster, Institute of Modern and Contemporary Culture, supported by public funding from Arts Council England.
