Carbonation Press

A small press located on the lands of the Spokane Tribe, commonly called Spokane, Washington, USA 

Carbonation’s Story

Poet and librarian Greg Bem created Carbonation Press in late 2023 after years of supporting small press activities around the world, as well as leading small publishing projects. Carbonation Press supports writers in the publication of their oddly-sized works.

Carbonation’s Goal

Carbonation Press aims to publish the work of writers spanning different genres and forms. Publications have limited runs, with each run for each title limited to a quantity of 30 for distribution and 1 for an archive. The press offers print-on-demand opportunities for each title, and additional runs are considered depending on demand.
