Call for Nominations: The Advent of the Small Press

Let’s get everybody to buy a book of poetry from an independent publisher this Christmas! Throughout December I will feature a different book each day along with details of where to buy it, and I’d like you to nominate who you want to see.

So, if a writer you admire (or maybe even yourself) has had their poetry published by a small publisher at some point in 2012 – be it a full length collection, or a few poems in an anthology – I’d like to tell more people about it!

Christmas is a fantastic opportunity to support the small businesses that we all know and love; a chance to send some extra business their way when we buy a gift from them for somebody else, or ask for something from them ourselves.

Baring this in mind, I’d like to do my bit for my fellow writers and publishers by sharing a link everyday during advent featuring a book that you might want to put on your Christmas list. That way, if anybody is stuck for ideas, they’ll know where to turn.

I’d like you to help by sending me links to the books you’d like to see featured, along with a few words explaining why they are great (or a short review if you’re feeling adventurous), and by sharing this page far and wide!

Send links and reviews to: smallpressadvent@yahoo.co.uk

(Nominations will remain open until December 14th)

Many thanks!
