There is sad news coming out of Southern Methodist University this week.  SMU Press, the oldest university publishing house in Texas, will have its operations shut down on June 1, 2010.  The editors of the press – Keith Gregory, Kathryn Lang, and George Ann Ratchford – had no hint or prior warning that this was coming. Read the article here and realize it’s time to fight back.

SMU Press currently has 15 new projects under contract and 130 other titles in print, effectively unsupported if this closure occurs.  Please send an e-mail a statement in support of the Press to Kathryn Lang as soon as you possible can.  Her email address is
