Dear Peaceful Reader:
Welcome to Whitepoint Press which is located here virtually and in San Pedro, California, in a more concrete way. Our goal is to publish fiction and poetry that take risks. I started Whitepoint Press because writing can influence social change, and I began this enterprise by publishing my own books. There’s a precedent for what I’m doing; Lawrence Ferlinghetti launched City Lights Publishers in 1955 with his own book of poetry, and City Lights is still thriving. Whitepoint Press is joining this tradition of progressive California publishing.
