Small Press Story #1: BPNW Members Distribute BPNW's Own Small Press Poster

March is Small Press Month: every day we'll be telling a new story about what our members are doing, why they are publishing, what new events or books are coming, or just any of the other 31 other stories (or more) that come to us during Small Press Month.

For Story #1, we'd like to share our beautiful BPNW poster, created especially for us by Lionfish Creative. BPNW member Galyn Gardner got this project started and with help from her colleagues at Lionfish, including designer Michael Wildeman, created a lovely reminder that big things happen even at the smallest press.

The following BPNW members are distributing this poster to their local libraries and bookstores in Washington. If you picked up posters at the Feb. 19 meeting and are not listed below, be sure to send us your name and where you will be distributing your posters. Want to help? Posters still available for pick-up at Lionfish Creative, 11010 Northup Way, Bellevue, WA 98004, 425-285-1500. Galyn will have posters available at the front desk, along with the national Small Press Month poster featuring Sherman Alexie.
