SPT’s events happen in a variety of Bay Area venues (art spaces, galleries, bookstores) and online. We partner exclusively with accessible locations. Accessibility notes can be found on each event page. All events are recorded.
Small Press Traffic is a Bay Area seedbed for poets who push boundaries in the arts. We present programs, publications, and curatorial opportunities with an ethos of radical inclusivity. Committed to this mission since 1974, we highlight diverse, multidisciplinary, and intergenerational practitioners in our public programs, and prioritize equity, accessibility, and collaboration in our working model. SPT also stewards an archive of small press material produced and circulated in the Bay Area over the last half century.
