Vouched exists to promote small press literature. Simple. We do this in a number of ways:
Guerrilla Book Stores: We set up tables of books at art/literary/craft events, and we sell a select number of small press titles that we love. If a book is on our table, we’ve read it and loved it and want to get it in your hands so you can do the same.
Vouched Presents: We started the reading series to remind people that literature can shake its ass. There are real, alive writers reading here, reading real, alive words. It seems people have forgotten that these days, that literature didn’t stop in the 70s and 80s, or even in the 20s and 30s. If you think words are dead, come let us show you life.
Vouched Online: We keep you up to date here–where our tables are, when readings are taking place, &c. We also pimp some of our favorite work published around the web, because we believe in online publishing, and we’re glad to help legitimize online journals in our own small way.
Please note: due to backlog, we are currently closed to new book reviews.
