Indie Literary Market - Toronto June 5
"We also see our events as responding to, and facilitating community around literature and publishing. The technology of the book is not one merely of information technology, but interactive technology. Readers, writers, and publishers come together to share their ‘joie de livre’ in a context that is outside of the strictures of predominantly market-driven publishing. We can turn on a dime, because we don’t need thousands of dollars to continue. Our ‘share-holders’ are people who 'share' in our work by 'holding' our publications in their hands, and share our mutual appreciation of independent literature and publishing."
