About The Teaching Press

The Teaching Press was founded and is led by Professor Rebecca Meacham. It officially launched with its first book in April, 2019. The Teaching Press operates as a class as well as through internships to provide students hands-on opportunities to learn multiple 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 2022

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

The Teaching Press has completed one book of poetry and sketches, The Village and the Vagabond; a photo-filled history book of the Green Bay Women’s Basketball team, The Green Bay Way; and an educational children’s book, The Diary of Homes McGee: A Great Lakes Summer Vacation. We also host events with local schools to make free writers’ journals, create themed mini-notebooks for book festivals and charitable organizations, and showcase our learning through explainers right here on this blog. We have several more projects launching soon—so stay tuned!
