little somethings press: issue five launch

at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe

Little Somethings Press: A Collection of Small Writings, which amplifies “the power of micro-literature, handmade books, and the creative community of Tempe and beyond,” celebrates the release of its fifth issue.

Emerging voices, students, and professional writers explore ephemera and things we can’t let go of—things that remind us of the beauty of impermanence. The issues are made from up-cycled materials during community bookmaking workshops at the Tempe Public Library and will be available for purchase at Changing Hands. Join us for a night of readings and discussion by contributors. This project is partially funded by a City of Tempe Community Arts Grant to highlight the arts in our vibrant city.

Bookmaking Workshops

These workshops were inspired by Cardboard House Press’s Cartonera Collective. Our founding editor attended the first Cartonera Collective and learned that upcycled materials could become platforms for communities and that each of us has the power to share our stories.

little somethings press hosted bookmaking workshops at the Tempe Public Library. These workshops were made possible with a City of Tempe – Community Arts Grant.

Community members helped our little press stock up on the words of our community, then took home books they made with their own hands.
