Hi! My name is Joseph Carlough. I run Displaced Snail Publications. I've had my writing accepted by a series of publications and journals through the years, and occasionally still send things out for review. But I've found the process to be annoying and disappointing. So I began to make zines (self-published works, think homemade magazines) and sell my handmade books at zine fests, craft shows, and book fairs. I just love it. After quitting my job as a professional book designer, I began to pick up more and more freelance work, finding a niche market for chapbook design and printing. It's kind of a hobby-as-a-job-as-a-hobby situation. If you ever want to make a book, just let me know and I'd be more than happy to lend you my services!
