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.”
