Gnashing Teeth Publishing

| words that get in your teeth

the world around us

this week was supposed to be AWP in san antonio texas. the event coordinators at this time have decided to continue with the conference while about half of the participants, including vendors and exhibitors, have dropped out. we are not taking sides, but we do have empathy for the many small indie presses which depend on AWP each year to increase their visibility and get their authors in front of a broader audience. there are many vital voices out now which deserve to be heard. poets and authors who trust small presses and publishers know there is often the barest of marketing budgets (if any) and know they are working hand in hand to promote their work.

we actively seek out those small presses. we want to know who are your favorite indie publishers. drop them in the comments. add a link if you have one. then pick one and buy a book. or two. we invite other small presses to share the love and support each other.

now back to editing.
