That's A Wrap: 31 Stories in 31 Days for Small Press Month

We started on March 1 with a pledge to publish 31 stories in celebration of Small Press Month drawn from the lives and experiences of our members. It's been terrific fun to read about the many, many different types of publishing being down here in the Northwest by our members.

Novels, poetry, nonfiction, fragmentary writing, and so much more. We've learned about members who literally traveled in the footsteps of Marco Polo, who brought their childhood stories from Africa to the American radio via picture books, who started writing to escape farm chores, and who are persistently peppering the President of the United States with a call to expand health services for returning veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq.

You can still read all these stories at:

And feel free to pass this link along or share with a friend.

And we still haven't told everyone's story! At Book Publishers Northwest, we're meeting new people at every gathering of the group, both veterans of publishing and newcomers. Starting April 1, this blog and website will be migrating a new location. We're keeping all the wonderful resources here and adding new features to help both experienced and new publishers.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our blog in March. You made this truly a celebration of the Small Press Month.
