Indie Publishing Festival
Art Books, Poetry Chaps, and Zines
Saturday, April 27, 2024

Press On is a free, annual publication festival that brings together area artists, poets, and independent publishers with local communities. In its 3rd year, Press On takes place Sat, April 27 from 11-5 in downtown Easthampton during Poetry Month. Tabling is free, as is entry to the event. Programming partners are selected to enliven the work & ideas underpinning the event, and are compensated for their contributions. Artists and publishers are supported through no-cost vending that connects them with new audiences. Attendees participate in programs, including all-ages art activities, a conversation on publishing, and a poetry reading—each organized by partners—to enrich their relationship to the presented work and connect them with local artists and writers. This curated suite of activities is designed to be an immersive, supportive cultural experience for all.
