The Athenaeum Press

The Athenaeum Press is a student-driven publishing lab that offers students professional-level hands-on experience in authoring, designing and producing innovative stories about our region.

About the Press

Rather than accepting completed manuscripts for publishing, the press accepts project proposals that will be intensely developed by an interdisciplinary, collaborative group of students and faculty. The press seeks these proposals from all corners of the community, including non-profit organizations, community members, faculty and students at other institutions. Project initiators, or those that submit project proposals, will extensively collaborate with the press team to design, build and produce professional-quality content using unique and innovative technologies and media formats.
