Non-NYC Renegade Presses Ideas?

Hi everyone,

Boog recently kicked off our 14th season of our “d.a. levy lives:
celebrating renegade presses” series. I’m asking each of you for your
advice for possible non-NYC presses for this coming season.

I’ve included below the full list of the Non-NYC presses from the
first 13 seasons. With such a limited slate of dates, we must
especially continue to host only presses we have never featured
before. With any presses you suggest, if you could also include its
editor(s) and their email address(es).

Thanks in advance for your help and hoping you’re doing alright.

as ever,
