Two CLMP Lit Mag & Small Press Fairs Coming up this Spring

Sign up NOW! to attend or contribute copies of your publication to CLMP fairs in New Britain, CT and Hudson, NY

The Fairs feature independent literary publishers, with journals selling for $2 an issue and books for $4 each. There are also panels and readings to attract the public. These fairs are presented as marketing opportunities to raise the awareness of what you publish (it's the Bargains Galore! aspect that draws the crowds), so take advantage of these chances to utilize your backstock and introduce yourselves to new audiences.

Attend these fairs in person and and keep all proceeds of your sales, while meeting and greeting fair attendees. If you can't come in person, contribute copies and make sure your books or magazines reach new readers' hands!

Sign up now with our easy online registration form:
