Are you interested in publishing with San? Please send an inquiry email to tehpeoplestudio@gmail.com.

San is a micro press housed under Teh People Studio.

San takes inspiration from its name to meditate on relational pathways of creation, and reflects our love for the play and labour involved in meaning-making.

San is interested in content of all kinds, and centers BIPOC storytellers who want to work in interdisciplinary formats. This includes print, digital, audio-visual, live performance, and installation formats. We love alternative, speculative configurations of literature and literary experiences, and are interested in bending and breaking convention, form and language in meaningful and creative ways.

We publish zines, chapbooks, experimental print objects, and hybrid art forms three times a year (March, July, December). If you are into stories, inter-art projects, collaboration and experiential, affective modes of work, say hello!

Excerpts

there was already too much:
sweetgrass prickling our shadows teetering
on white fence tops;

from Gradations I

How should we get there,
asks the pressure of your finger

on the spine of my question,

from Gradations II
