Optimist Press gazes confidently down the primrose path of future possibility while exhuming the buried past and pondering our catastrophic present.

My name is Keith M. Judge. I’m a writer from Chicago, but I bill myself as a professional polemicist, a political dissident with literary inclinations. Optimist Press was established in August of 2020 to carve out a home in the national narrative for voices on The Left. We carpet bomb social media with caricatures and effigies of powerful people and write works calculated to challenge the status quo.
