About Us

This Land Press is a brand about the middle of America.


Since 2010, we’ve established an impeccable reputation for aggressive and compelling journalism, fiction, photography, poetry and art by acclaimed writers and artists. This Land designs and stories come from the nation’s best artists, writers, and thinkers, but our focus remains on life in the middle of America.


Our home state Oklahoma has a rich tradition of progressive thinkers. The wiry Woody Guthrie blasted his pro-social message across the nation, armed with just a guitar; today he’s a folk hero. From the ashes of deep-seated racial intolerance, Ralph Ellison emerged as one of our nations most powerful African-American voices. Even Will Rogers—the homely cowboy philosopher-perpetuated a friendly mistrust of government.

If you’re like most of us-or like Woody Guthrie-you might be “grumblin’ and wonderin’ ” if this land’s still made for you and me. This Land Press addresses the question by exploring our past and present; we want to be a place where you can sense a new enthusiasm and wonder about life in the middle of America, while remaining critical of the injustices and absurdities that surround us.

Our mission is to illuminate life and culture in the middle of America through courageous, compelling products and stories. We encourage inclusion, tolerance, equality, diversity, integrity, creativity, critical thought, and stewardship. We believe that by attending to the world around us, we can illuminate our condition for the purpose of enhancing and celebrating its beauty and rectifying its neglect.
