Here’s a quick shout out to the Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs for including our Tribune LED Writing Contest in their newsletter this week! The OCA is sponsoring the contest’s prize, but they do so much more for Columbia! If you’re in the area, sign up for their newsletter – it’s a great way to keep up with the local arts scene. http://www.como.gov/arts/
Now that the dust has settled, we wanted to share just a few more shots from the 2017 Unbound Book Festival. We met some amazing writers, publishers, teachers and readers – spending the day in the beautiful Kimball Ballroom was icing on the cake.
Details are in the links above, but here are the basics:
We are accepting submissions until through June 30, 2017. The chosen piece will be displayed in downtown Columbia, and the winning writer will receive a cash prize.
We are so grateful for the support of the Columbia Daily Tribune and the City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs, without whom we could not have offered this exciting new opportunity for Mid-Missouri writers.
We’re eagerly awaiting a proof of the paperback LED Anthology, which means it’s time for you to place an order. If you pre-order the anthology, we’ll ship your copy with some sweet letterpress ephemera, hot off the press. Don’t wait though, once we approve the proof and our books ship, any purchase will just be a regular ol’ order (still a pretty swell deal at only $6.00).
You’re probably wondering where you can place your order. Allow us to introduce our new website! Partial Press is the umbrella organization behind LED (you may have noticed it on our about page) and now that LED is moving on to this exciting new phase, we decided it was time to launch Partial Press and begin rolling out other exciting publishing projects. Visit the Catalog Page to ore-order the LED Anthology and be sure to check out our other publications for sale.
LED news will continue to be posted here with our archive, but you’ll want to check Partial Press for other announcements and opportunities in the realm of experimental and small press publishing. The Partial Press Facebook page (formerly our LED page) will continue to feature LED content. You can also follow Partial Press on Tumblr if you’re into that.
