Press Update

Its been a while since anyone's heard from our digital outpost. So much is happening that we haven't had a chance to update you on some of our printing projects, the moving of our base of operations and plans for the future. So here you go...an update!

If you haven't heard, Last Word Books and the press have moved to a new location in downtown Olympia. Come down and check out our new digs at 111 Cherry St. NE in the old Olympia Glass Building. Most of our inventory is still packed in boxes and scattered all over the place, but our retail store is up and running. We'll have a grand reopening celebration Saturday June 21st, so keep an eye out for forthcoming details. 

We're currently working on several book projects with the poets Mark Sargent and Alan Kaufman, both fantastic poets and growing friends. Mark Sargent's Li Ho Tour and Kaufman's Straight Jacket Elegies are powerful, evocative works we are proud to publish. Here are links to short bios of Alan Kaufman and Mark Sargent.

We're also hard at work printing the first issue of Tales from Nemo's Factory. Who doesn't like absurdist, dystopian comix with TVs walking around beating up robots? Look for it at the 2014 Olympia Comic Festival Saturday June 7th. 

There's so much more to tell, but we'll leave it at that for the time being. Check back for more updates  and news soon!
