Are your ready for Small Press Day 2019?

Small Press Day 2019Small Press Day 2019 looks set to be the best celebration yet of the British independent comic press and micro publishers from its dedicated team of organisers.

In 2016 an idea born on Twitter led to a series of nationwide events in a matter of weeks. The inaugural Small Press Day – a celebratory event designed to spotlight the possibilities of small press publishing and to introduce its practitioners to the far wider audience they deserve – proved to be a phenomenal success. No less than 25 events championing the small press were held across the UK and Ireland on the same day in July – including shop signings, fairs, panels and workshops – resulting in #SmallPressDay to trend throughout.

Building on this trend, hundreds and hundreds joined in for Small Press Day 2017 and Small Press Day 2018 and met with the next generation of superstar comic creators, zine makers, and DIY micro publishers.

Which brings us to this year where the team behind this annual celebration are looking to make Small Press Day 2019 bigger, better, and bolder, with events around the UK in local comic shops and other venues.

On Saturday 13th July, celebrate all things small press and to help to make that happen!
