A site focusing on literature of the Southern Delta

Welcome to Wattensaw Press

Who we are

We are dedicated to the literature and history of the Arkansas Delta. We try to keep the legacy of our culture, both the good and the rest, alive for generations to come. We look at the religions, politics, and social conventions of the modern rural south with all its joys, weaknesses, trials, and hopes.

What's new

The latest thing we've done is publish a novel by Jimmie von Tungeln called The Charmed Time. It tells the story of a weary warrior who seeks peace in the modern south but finds danger, intrigue, and a long-standing curse instead.


It is available in print or digital form from major on-line retailers, or, to order directly, go to the Books page.


See the Blog Page for thoughts on our experiences in the Delta.
