Since we began publishing books in 2011, Moon Willow Press has stayed active in the community, whether it’s helping our authors get the books needed for their personal book launches and signings or hosting and participating in events around Vancouver.

We’ve also hosted the international 100,000 Poets for Change event in the greater Vancouver area since its inception in 2011. Each year we have taken on diverse projects, including a beach cleanup at False Creek, an “enpipe line poets” reading at the Carnegie Centre, an Earthwalk reading, short story contests, and a stage at western Canada’s largest literary event, Word Vancouver.
