DIY Small Press


Want to start your own small press and wondering how to go about doing so? Spencer Madsen, founder of Sorry House, is sharing everything he’s learned over at The Toast. Spencer thought up Sorry House at the start of 2013, and in the year since has “seen [his] books go from PDF to featured in Vice, Paper, Nylon, and [here on] The Rumpus.”
