This has been a very exciting week here at Ooligan Press. We have finished reviewing our galley proofs and are ready to submit the book package to our printer. That’s right, we are gearing up to print the book! It’s not long before the official publication date, so be sure to reserve your copy today.
Since my last update, we have been in contact with the good folks at Beyond Words, and it looks like we may have our first event space negotiated. Check back during my next Start to Finish post for more details.
We are also still in the process of contacting the teachers and students who made We Belong in History possible. So, keep checking your e-mails, because there’s probably a letter awaiting you from us!
We now have a dedicated webpage for We Belong in History: Writing with William Stafford. This resource contains information about the project, our scope as a publisher, and our hope to foster a love of poetry within a new generation of Oregonians. And if you ask me, these kids are standouts who most definitely belong to history.
Don’t forget to peruse some great selections from our backlist—like Classroom Publishing and Dot-to-Dot,Oregon—while you’re there.
