Book Publishers Directory
Social distancing is turning into our new reality. Keep yourself productive and sane during this time by journalling, creating, reading and learning. Take the time to start a new book, or read through that pile of novels on your nightstand. Write a poem, a short story, an essay or a book. Aim high and check out the contests we have listed at PublishersArchive.com when you're done. Be good to yourself and your neighbours, and know that we'll get through this.

Upcoming Book Events
Due to the concern internationally over spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), most book festivals and events planned for this spring and summer have been cancelled or postponed.
If you have bought tickets or display space at any of them, you should contact the organizers. Most will either refund you or roll your registration over to the next year's event.
A number of online, virtual literary festivals are scheduled that you can attend from the comfort of your own home, including a Crime and Thriller Book Festival on March 28, and a Historical Fiction Festival on June 6.
