Small Press Month, which takes place every year in March, is a Nationwide Celebration of the strong, independent, diverse voices found in the pages brought to us by the country’s great Literary Magazines and Small Book Publishers. WordTheatre is honored to be a part of this grass roots effort to raise awareness about the pressing need for broader venues of literary expression, as large, international conglomerates are taking fewer risks and publishing for a narrowing perspective. We believe the Small Presses are keeping great literature alive!  For more information visit, www.smallpressmonth.org
