Nine Sisters Press was founded in 2019 as an independent literary press.

The press takes its name from the Nine Sisters, a chain of nine volcanic mountains and hills that run from Morro Bay to San Luis Obispo in San Luis Obispo County, California.


The press's logo, a "9" superimposed on a shoreline, is an abstraction of Morro Rock, the best known of the Nine Sisters.
