The challenge of preserving a craft that predates the Google search by centuries requires some printer-to-printer networking! Shop Talks are for talking shop: comparing notes on equipment and techniques, finding sources for supplies, or sharing opportunities and talents. We gather around the virtual composing stone for these uncensored, unrecorded, free roundtables hosted by genial moderators on a monthly basis. There are no stupid questions, and mansplainers will be digitally escorted to a solo breakout room.
Let’s round out Banned Books Week (October 1–7) by sharing work that inspires activism and change. We’ll discuss the rise of book bans and ways printers can put their presses to work in the fight for free speech.
All of PiP’s Shop Talk events are live, uncensored, and unrecorded — we find it’s a lot more fun and interactive this way. They are closed captioned using Zoom’s Live Transcription feature.
