About Us


Mission Statement:

Last Word Press is a small press publisher of exceptional poetry, subversive pamphlets, & forgotten works of literature. It is our goal to inspire and engage the minds of those who have been down-trodden, outcast, beat…in the hopes of cultivating a better world.


Located in Olympia, Washington, Last Word Press was founded in 2007 as the publishing arm of Last Word Books. We have specialized in arcane technologies, including offset, letterpress (and begrudgingly) digital printing, book binding and creative design. The naysayers of the orbis digitalis have long declared the death of the printed word, but we refuse to let that happen. 

For inquiries into our various projects or submissions email us at lastwordpress@gmail.com.
