(forward) Fredericton's Small Press Fair (new fair!)

Small Press Fair
March 15 from 12 to 5pm

Any interested artists, writers, or publishers can purchase a table for the day for $10 to sell and promote their product. There are still a few tables left to be booked.

Submissions can include: artist multiples, artist books, comics, zines, books/livres, lit mags, chapbooks, indie publishers, micro and small presses.

Gallery Connexion's membership will have access to sell one or two items on a shared membership table free of charge. Contact the gallery to confirm your participation and the items you wish to include. Your participation may be required to work the table for an hour or so.

So far we have The Fiddlehead, AB Publishing, and Broken Jaw Press participating from Fredericton, and EyeLevel Gallery, Anchor Archives, and S.A.G.S.R.I from Halifax.

For more information, or to register for a table, call Meredith at (506) 454-1433 or email at

The Small Press Fair is taking place in conjunction with the 8th International Multicultural-Multilingual Poetry Reading and Poster Poem Exhibition, organized by Nela Rio. Poems in a variety of languages will be displayed around the gallery, and readings will take place following the Small Press Fair on March 15 from 5 to 8pm in the Rick Burns Gallery. Admission is free.

Gallery Connexion is located at 453 Queen Street, corner of York Street and Queen Street, in the back of the Justice Building (look for the bright green door- off the York Street Parking Lot).

Regular hours are Tuesday to Friday, 12 to 5pm.
