Gutwrench Press is dedicated to better correspondence and connection through the Keep Writing postcard project, unique zines exploring our hometowns and classes designed to help develop a creative practice in your everyday life.

Routed in Louisiana, we are making plans for bringing the zines, postcards and classes to other parts of the country in 2020, because we firmly believe we have more in common than we have differences. And we miss our long distance friends and family.
