MORE DISTRIBUTION! We’re proud to announce a partnership with SPD – Small Press Distribution. SPD is a non-profit literary arts organization located in Berkeley, California. Their mission is to connect readers with writers by providing access to independently published literature. SPD allows essential but underrepresented literary communities to participate fully in the marketplace and in the culture at large through book distribution, information services, and public advocacy programs. SPD nurtures an environment in which the literary arts are valued and sustained. Founded in 1969, SPD is currently the only distributor in the country dedicated exclusively to independently published literature.
