Small Publishers Fair 2020 was cancelled in June. The Fair would have coincided with the UK’s second Covid lockdown.
I attempted to obtain Arts Council England funding for an alternative to the Fair but was unsuccessful. Though disappointing the process was a useful one and I hope it leads to some good outcomes.
With the promise of a vaccine, it now seems possible that Small Publishers Fair will be able to take place next year, on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 November 2021.
So the message is, this has been a difficult year but the Fair will take place again, hopefully in 2021.
Look after each other and stay well.
