The origin of Sunset Press can be traced back to a Thursday. It was the day Maria Peteet, A. Shaikh, Trudy Wrona, and Emmy Roday serendipitously met for the first time in the Introduction to Poetry Workshop offered in the Fall of 2018 at Kenyon College. After having an incredible time in this one-of-a-kind intensive writing seminar, they were disappointed to have to wait a semester in order to take the advanced workshop. While Kenyon's literary community is robust, alongside the Kenyon Review and various literary magazines, there lacks a place where students can exhibit & experience long form work outside of creative writing classes. Sunset Press was created to bridge this gap. The Press's goal is to produce and publish creative long form texts written, edited, and designed by Kenyon Students. However, unlike other literary organizations, the Press is also dedicated to focus on emerging and underrepresented voices. With our unique application process, we hoped to create a space which understands that the identity of the writer is intrinsically related to their work. At it's heart, Sunset Press is the golden hour of writing, a creative space expanding on the page and beyond.
