The Teaching Press: where connections are bound.

About The Teaching Press

The Teaching Press was founded and is led by Rebecca Meacham. It was proposed and built in 2016. Originally, The Teaching Press operated as a class, but now it is an on-campus internship that provides students the opportunity to learn different aspects of the publishing industry. 

At the Press, we live by (and work under) two mottos:

1. “Failure is baked in.”

2. “Don’t expect competence.” 

This is because we are all about learning through experience. The staff changes nearly every semester, which means students that have not yet learned how to copyedit or bind a book are coming in. We are all little babies in the world of publishing, but we are ready and eager to develop our skills by diving on in!

Current Interns for Spring 2021

Hardworking students of all majors that are gaining experience in a real-world publishing environment in which to design, create, research, collaborate, implement, and execute a variety of client-led publications.

Projects & Activities by The Teaching Press

We are just getting started! The Teaching Press has completed one book of poetry and sketches, The Village and the Vagabond, and one educational children’s book, The Diary of Homes McGee: A Great Lakes Summer Vacation.  Along with various community projects, such as events with local high schools and making free writers’ journals with quotes from The Library Book by Susan Orlean (UntitledTown Book and Author Festival headliner). Our on-going project is The Green Bay Way, a photo-filled history book of the Green Bay Women’s Basketball team.
