Expedition Press is a letterpress printshop in Kingston, WA focused on poetry and type, and run by artist Myrna Keliher. Our mission is to deepen regard for language, amplify underrepresented voices, and increase access to poetry.

We believe that poetry provides direct access to our deepest interiors and that it's important to spend time there. We make language seen and felt: able to be experienced, held, and remembered. To this end we produce art on paper with letters: poetry broadsides, small prints, and custom projects.

We are working to embed anti-racist practices in every aspect of our own (white) lives. This is ongoing work. We know poetry is vital to our understanding of social justice. We know imagination is crucial to freedom. We fight to make space for imagination in our everyday visual environment.
