Not Non-for-Profit: Publishing Strategies for Survival

by Colorama, Gender Fail, Lady Liberty Press & Library

„…not non-for-profit but profit-for-survival or profit-to-continue-our-work-without-other means-of-capital and most importantly to make money for others I publish, to create profit-for-labor.“ Genderfail, Manifesto – Profit for Survival, 2022

Be Oakley (Gender Fail) and Johanna Maierski (Colorama) discuss their respective publishing practices and strategies for continuing and contributing to the conversation about accessibility, representation and transparency in the small press community. Oakley will address their recent publication Publishing Now: GenderFail’s Working Class Guide to Making a Living Off Self Publishing while Maierski will share their experience with the membership program and the Selfpublishing Summer School for people with marginalized perspectives.

Speaker: Be Oakley, Gender Fail and Johanna Maierski, Colorama

Moderator: Nina Prader, Lady Liberty Press & Library
