Nomadic Press is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports the works of emerging and established writers and artists. Through publications (including translations) and performances, Nomadic Press aims to build community among artists across disciplines. We support and provide venues for artwork across all media and disciplines by both emerging and established artists. Nomadic Press’s goal is to guide writers and artists through a supportive and connective process and to offer each artist the opportunity to have his or her work(s) presented in carefully edited and curated publications and events. We strive to juxtapose myriad voices and visions in ways that are surprising and complementary.
Nomadic Press publishes an annual journal, seasonal chapbooks, and special issues in print, as well as book reviews and other articles online. As part of Nomadic Press’s mission to stimulate conversation among eclectic voices, Nomadic Press seeks out and encourages the translation and publication of non-Anglophone voices.
The Nomadic Press workspace in Oakland, California (opened in 2014), serves as a small performance, workshop, and informal gallery space for visual, musical, literary, and performing arts. Through events and open community hours, this Oakland headquarters also serves as a gathering space for our writers, artists, readers, viewers, neighbors, and fellow travelers. In addition, Nomadic Press pop-up events in Brooklyn, New York, offer artists on the East Coast opportunities for creative fellowship.
The name “Nomadic” is an homage to the organization’s original inspiration: artistic encounters created by physical and conceptual movement between locations, matter, ideas, and intentions—the movements of life.
