This August, two indie presses – Dead Rabbits Books & Southern Fried Karma Press – will embark on a collaborative literary tour across North Carolina to bring writers, readers, and publishers together to expand and uplift the literary community. Attendees can expect to hear the work of burgeoning authors from each press, meet with the publishers and editors about finding an audience for their work, and join in conversation that connects the literary community. Both presses hope to share their knowledge of the publishing industry while also learning from attendees about how they can support local literary communities. Additionally, many of these events will be recorded and appear on the Dead Rabbits Podcast to shine a light on writing and work done locally.
