about sunflower station press

a soft landing place

We publish up and coming artists that haven’t had the opportunities or resources to be published previously. Our ultimate goal is to populate the literary and art world with fresh voices and perspectives. Above all, we are a DIY, artist-centered, and community-oriented publishing press.

With roots in Los Angeles, The Bay Area, and The Pacific Northwest, Sunflower Station Press is a space for burgeoning artists to gather, create, and share. We seek to center artists whose work grapples with their surroundings. The primary question we are concerned with is how to interpret and stitch together the spectrum of experiences, joys, pleasures, and pains that arise in a world that can feel senseless and absurd at times. Our answer is Sunflower Station.
