Episode Info: In this episode I interview J.K. Fowler, the founder of Nomadic Press with locations in Oakland, CA and Brooklyn, NY. A look inside a small literary press. Are you curious about how one goes from the idea of creating a small press to actually operating one? Where does the idea come from? How did it progress into what it is today? J.K. Fowler talks about the process from the beginning of a thought that emerged while sitting in the Dubai airport, through the difficult first years, to the sustainable community building organization that it is today.

And I assume it could be planned, right, but there's something kind of magical about the fact that it wasn't. And there's something that makes me feel like it's more sustainable because it arose out of an organic process where mistakes were made and successes were had, but it was, it's constantly up and down.""Bringing together people who different perceptions of future time and what's possible in the near future and trying to create something that meets all of those is a really interesting and fruitful experience.""So the process is difficult.
