STLSPEX 2020 Illustration by Valeria Rodriguez.

The St. Louis Small Press Expo is an exposition of zines, chapbooks, lit mags, poetry, comics, small press authors, indie publishers, and print culture.

Vendor Applications for the St. Louis Small Press Expo 2020 are now live. Apply today!

We can’t know for certain what the future will bring, but for now we are actively reviewing applications and hoping very much that we will still be able to hold the Expo on August 15th, 2020 at the Contemporary Art Museum.


STL SPEX stimulates the independent literary and printing community in St Louis by providing resources to authors and creators in the form of training, networking opportunities, and through the annual indie-print showcase that is our namesake – the St. Louis Small Press Expo.
