Authenticity & Professionalization in 21st Century Small Press Publishing

Date/Time: Tuesday 27 November, 2018 - 4:00pm

Venue: St Michael's Building, room 3.17

Please join us on Tuesday 27 November at 4pm in St. Michael’s Building, LT 3.17, for Matvei Yankelevich’s talk on: ‘The Rhetorics of Authenticity and Professionalization in 21st Century Small Press Publishing’.

Matvei is a founding editor of Ugly Duckling Presse, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit small press that has brought out more than 250 titles to date. Throughout its history, UDP has favoured emerging, international, and “forgotten” writers, and its books, chapbooks, artist’s books, broadsides, and periodicals often contain handmade and letterpress elements, calling attention to the labour and history of bookmaking. His talk will investigate the pressures experienced by poetry-centered small press publishers in the US.

Admission is free but please book your place on Eventbrite.
