Cascadian Zen on dark background


Watershed Press fosters compelling work by a wide range of voices allied deeply with place and sustainable and Indigenous approaches to navigating the ecological and political harm of the Anthropocene in the bioregion of Cascadia. We’re committed to poetries, and stories that have been traditionally suppressed and distorted by colonization. We want to make room for all marginalized voices, including writing at the aesthetic margins, and believe in speaking truth to political power with compassion.
