University of Montana Press
Welcome to the Press!
We're excited to work with writers from a range of fields to produce top-tier publications from the beautiful designs of Phil Korell to the translated poetry of Eduardo Chirinos, to name a few of our featured productions. We explore and excite the human mind and heart through academic analysis, creative writing, and interdisciplinary projects that bridge the gap between cultures and communities. Thank you for supporting the UM Press. We look forward to sharing these texts with you!
Who We Are & What We Do
We hope to inspire readers to engage with the intellectual and creative material we produce. The Latin etymological roots of the word publishing itself are publicare, to make public, and publicus, pertaining to the people. We bring new texts to readers to help expand knowledge, perspective, and thought. Publishing is never an act of solitude, but of connection, bringing people together to share stories and ideas.
If you would like to contribute to our mission, please reach out to Ashby Kinch, our Publishing Director, at UMPress@umontana.edu to discuss donations.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming projects, including an art book on photography and the nascent Book Arts Program here at UM. Check out the UM Book Arts Program tab for more information on the recent developments with the printing press's arrival.
