Philalalia, Philadelphia’s annual small press and handmade poetry and art fair is back.

This free, three-day event is open to the public and will be taking place at Tyler School of Art & Temple Contemporary Gallery. It runs from Thursday, September 14th to Saturday, September 16th.

On the 14th at 2:30 PM, The Temple University FMA Creative Writing Program is hosting Poetry, Politics and the Art of the Book, a panel featuring five, small press poet-publishers.

Be a part of this discussion and Q&A moderated by Brian Teare and featuring editors from Argos Books, Belladonna Collective, Doublecross Press, and Nightboat Books. These publishers are known for getting innovative writing in print. They plan to talk about their decisions as publishers and poets during the age of Donald Trump, reinvigorating the art of the book, and other topics pertaining to print.

Philalalia continues until Saturday with events at Tyler School of Art from noon to 5 PM.  Over 25 small presses, comic artists, zine makers, illustrators and book artists will be there to perform and sell their wares. Come out and be a part of this year’s readings, performances and panels at the 4th annual Philalalia.
