Jambu Press

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The rose-apple tree in English, the jambu has a great span of branches and thick, leathery leaves providing shelter from the sun. It is believed that Buddha sat under a jambu tree for shade. We hope reading books from Jambu Press will bring beauty, inspiration, and raise awareness, like sitting in the shade of a jambu. ​An expression of Studio Saraswati, Jambu Press is an independent endeavor run by a small collective of San Francisco poets, editors, and activists devoted to poetry as a positive path to social change.
