About

Tolsun Publishing, INC is a non-profit, small press based out of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts.  

We publish daring, energetic books that use separate parts to construct a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, flash memoir, and more. We treasure creativity, and so we may not know we love something until we see it. Art, like the jackalope, cannot be restrained by classification or form.

At Tolsun, the importance of aesthetic and design is paramount: A Tolsun Book will look and feel beautiful on your bookshelf, coffee table, or nightstand. Go ahead, judge our books by their covers!

We believe in the cosmic power of strong relationships with authors, artists, partners, and the community. Our authors and staff have become our family. The Tolsun Family is an incredible group of humans that support each other in ways we could never have believed when we first made the decision to start a press.

Tolsun Publishing proudly practices stewardship in the literary community by publishing debut and experienced authors with diverse backgrounds, licensing artwork from working artists and designers, tabling at bookfairs, presenting at literary conferences, and hosting readings.

Our plans for the future include creating a dedicated audio department to record each of our books so that they are more accessible to our readers, offering editing, design, and formatting services on a sliding payment scale, developing educational outreach in schools and through public workshops and internships, and to continue publishing rad books by amazing humans.
