For all of you students and educators out there, allow me to be the first to welcome you to a new school year!
We are in the process of finalizing the interior design of We Belong in History, after which we will submit the project to our Editing team for a final proofread. From there, we’ll be eagerly awaiting the arrival of our galleys. We Belong in History has also entered its XML type-coding phase for our e-book offering.
In marketing news, we are receiving an outpouring of support from contributors who wish to help our marketing efforts. Thank you all for your advocacy, everyone! We are currently reviewing our collateral proposals, as well as priming our staff for the William Stafford Centennial Celebrations scheduled to take place throughout the state. Soon, we will begin contacting representatives of organizations throughout Oregon to spread the news of We Belong in History’s eminent arrival. It is our goal to send the finished book package to our printer by Thanksgiving, with We Belong in History scheduled for publication onJanuary 1, 2014.
October is a month full of exciting events for Ooligan Press. The annual conference for The Oregon Council for Teachers of English (OCTE) takes place on Saturday, October 5. Our director will be there to represent us, so be sure to stop by our table if you’re attending the event. And who can forget about Wordstock that same Saturday and Sunday (October 5 and 6)? We’ll have several students at our booth throughout the day, plus tons of great promotional materials and books for you to check out. We’d love to chat with you about Ooligan, our forthcoming books, and all things literary, so don’t forget to drop by and say hello.
