Small Presses

Two publishers will have tables in the Author Tent: Cedar Creek Publishing and Pocahontas Press.

Cedar Creek, headquartered in Bremo Bluff, Virginia, publishes Virginia books by Virginia authors—poetry, memoir, fiction, and books for children. Cedar Creek also publishes an anthology by the Blue Ridge Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club.

Pocahontas Press, headquartered in Blacksburg, was founded over 25 years ago by Mary Holliman. When Mary died in 2011, Jane and Michael Abraham purchased rights to the name. Michael, who is also an author, ran the family priniting business for 17 years and knows the technical side of printing. Jane, who has a degree in English, shares Mary Holliman's vision that "everyone, no matter how ordinary, has a story that needs to be told."
At the Pocahontas Press table, many of the press's older books will be for sale at a special discount price. Here are a few of the Pocahontas Press books:
