Reading & Being Read : Manchester
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.
