Junction Books is hoping to expand our publishing program and, to that end, we are asking for help from anyone who appreciates what we do. Any patronage that you are able to make towards our publishing program through our Patreon page will be greatly appreciated. We hope to grow the program to the point where we are able to publish at least four chapbooks per year, in addition to two broadsides. Thank you for considering becoming a patron of Junction Books.

The market will be on Saturday, November 22, and will run from 11:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. There will be many amazing small presses in attendance and the winner of the bpNichol Chapbook Award will be announced. Junction Books will have two new poetry pamphlets from Adam Getty and A.F. Moritz available to buy, as well as Adrienne Weiss’s chapbook, Production 1060: The Oz Monologues, and A.F.

Indie Literary Market
Meet The Presses’ Indie Literary Market will be happening this Saturday, November 16, noon to 4:30 p.m. at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Ave.). Junction Books will be participating, along with a bunch of other small press publishers, and there will be a lot of cool literary artifacts to purchase, including poetry and fiction books and chapbooks, and one-of-a-kind broadsides. This will be the first time since 2004 that Junction Books will have new publications to sell: a chapbook by Adrienne Weiss titled Production 1060: The Oz Monologues, and a screen-printed broadside by A. F. Moritz. So please come by and check out Junction Books and the other great indie presses at the market this Saturday! Cheers!
