Paperweight

Paperweight is a primarily online-based organization dedicated to furthering a dialogue on independent publishing.

“The independent publishing community requires a space that can facilitate a cultural dialogue, both in historical and contemporary contexts, as well as provide resources that others have found helpful in their own production. Paperweight aims to harbor these dialogues while offering an alternative method for the dissemination of information surrounding independent publishing culture. In addition to its space online, Paperweight periodically publishes an expanded physical article from the website and organizes public discussions.”
