Indie Lit Fair

indie lit fair


June – August 2020

For the fourth year, CLMP presents the Indie Lit Fair, a showcase of independent literary magazines and presses, as part of New York City’s PEN World Voices Festival, which this year is taking place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic as the digital World Voices Festival, These Truths. In an era when the agreed-upon factual basis of our daily news is constantly undermined, there has never been a greater need for us to hear the deeper truths afforded by literature. This virtual edition of America’s premier international literary festival will engage with contested histories and memory, challenge the fabrications of truth served to us on an almost daily basis, and celebrate the beauty and power of storytelling.

For the Indie Lit Fair, 15 publishers will be featured each week throughout summer, along with special promotional offers for PEN World Voices Festival virtual visitors. Take a look at the essential books and magazines being produced by indie lit publishers and show your support by taking advantage of their promotional offers.

The Indie Lit Fair is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
