Expedition Press is a poetry publisher and letterpress printshop in Kingston, WA run by artist Myrna Keliher. We make art, books, and broadsides that showcase text and type. Our mission is to deepen regard for language and to increase access to poetry.
Our shop houses a fully equipped letterpress studio and bindery, including three platen presses, board shears, a guillotine paper cutter, and thousands of pounds of metal type. We are an editorial press and solicit most all the work we publish. While we’re not open for submissions at large, we do collaborate closely with independent publishers, poets, artists, and select clients. Learn more about what we do.
Expedition Press is located in a small town on the edge of Puget Sound, northwest USA. Our shop is not open to the public. Find out what we’re up to at all hours on Instagram and join Expedition’s mailing list for infrequent and intriguing updates.
