How does one survive and thrive as an artist in the San Francisco Bay Area? Living & Working is a multi-platform column focusing on the experiences and strategies from those who continue to live and work in the Bay Area.


Justin Carder is the owner of E.M. Wolfman Books in Downtown Oakland. Wolfman Books is a bookstore, small press, artist residency program, and community arts hub in downtown Oakland. Since we opened in 2014, we've hosted hundreds of literary arts and community events, published dozens of artist editions, a half-dozen books, and launched a quarterly magazine New Life Quarterly. Carder designs and publishes book through Wolfman Books, which is also a small press dedicated to hybrid and experimental non-fiction, poetry, and artist books, largely but not exclusively focused on Bay Area writers and artists. 

Living & Working is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
