Save Southern Methodist University Press

Posted: May 8, 2010 in News and General Posts

Some sad news, folks.  Due to budgetary concerns, SMU Press will be suspending operations, effective June 1st.  The novels and short story collections–including David McGlynn’s, The End of the Straight and Narrow–published by SMU Press has raised the bar for contemporary literary fiction, while also producing books with the look and feel of the highest quality.

According to Kathryn Lang, SMU Press’s senior editor, the move to suspend operations will result in the termination of 15 contracts for books yet to be published.  Lang is requesting letters of support, hoping that the university might reconsider its decision.  Already, support has come from some pretty big names.  If you’re familiar with SMU Press, its authors and titles, and don’t want to see it become extinct, please send an email of support to Kathryn Lang:
