Since Small Press Distribution (SPD) ceased operations at the end of March, the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) has worked to help impacted publishers navigate the situation. We distributed an initial survey to presses in April and are now issuing a follow-up to gauge how the community is faring three months in.

By participating in this survey, you agree to allow CLMP to share this data publicly in aggregate. We hope to issue a report with the survey's findings to distribute among the literary community and other literary stakeholders.
