Fond Farewell

Small Press News has recently learned that a fellow publication dedicated to independent literary presses has ceased operation. As of early November, The Mimeograph stopped publishing news, reviews, and interviews. While the news is sad, it does not come as a surprise to those involved in independent publishing where the work is hard, the pay is often nil, and the job is generally thankless outside the small groups dedicated to bringing unheard voices with literary merit to print. Indeed, SPN is sad to see The Mimeograph go, but the staff of SPN is negotiating with the staff of The Mimeograph regarding republishing some of departed magazine’s fine material.
