About


Lamar Literary Press Logo


is unique in that we:

  • Operate with the latest in book production technology and distribution
  • Are staffed principally by volunteers; all are experts in their fields
  • Serve students by training interns in the processes of small press production
  • Publish original fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction as well as the kinds of books produced by other university presses
  • Are one of the world's smallest university presses

Print-on-demand technology

We avoid large print runs, relying instead upon print-on-demand technology.  Our books remain in print indefinitely and are stored in computers rather than as printed books stashed away in boxes.  We examine manuscripts with the rigorous standards people expect from a university press, put our books through careful editorial processes, and publish only outstanding works.
