As well as launching our books in bookshops, we often sell Handheld Press books at book fairs, conventions, conferences and AGMs, depending on the subject. Kate also gives talks about publishing and design at libraries, and runs workshops on how publishing works for aspiring authors (and publishers).
If you’d like to book a Zoom talk (no fee), email us at email@example.com.

How to … reprint a lost feminist classic: 13 January 2021, 14-15h
Kate will be in conversation with British Library Publishing on 13th January as part of the online Creative Feminisms Festival, 17-18h UK time. A free, three day mini-festival showcasing the past, present and future of feminist publishing and creativity.
Republishing books can be an important political act. Virago’s Modern Classics series has revived the memory of countless women writers that have fallen out of favour. How though, do you go about it – from research and rights, to design, to curation and marketing?
Find out more from Maria Vassilopoulos, the British Library’s publishing sales & marketing manager and book trade historian, who talks about the new British Library Women Writers series. She’ll be in conversation with Handheld Press director Kate Macdonald to discuss the elegant Handheld Classics.
We are continually in talks to create more book stalls, events and talks: do revisit this page to see what has been arranged, or sign up to our monthly Newsletter.
Due to the public health emergency most of our planned outings and events have been cancelled. Events coming up in 2021 are still in planning, but we know we’ll be at EasterCon, FantasyCon and BristolCon.
