The history of small and micro presses in Canada is, in part, an exploration of creative modes of distributing literature. Many of these presses extend the modernist injunction to "make it new" to modes of publishing and to modes of distribution. In Cerberus (1952), the first title from Contact Press and a pivotal publication in Canadian small press, Raymond Souster declares, "the big thing is to get it across, 'make contact'" (75). Making contact for small and micro presses often requires navigating the space between writer and reader in new and creative ways. We seek papers that ask how small and micro press literature has been distributed, historically and in our contemporary moment.
