The University of Arkansas Press was founded in 1980 as the book publishing division of the University of Arkansas. A member of the Association of American University Presses, it publishes approximately twenty titles a year, about a third of which fall under the general heading of Arkansas and Regional Studies.
The Press is charged by the Trustees of the University with the publication of books in service to the academic community and for the enrichment of the broader culture, especially works of value that are likely to be turned aside by commercial houses. This press, like all university presses, has as its central and continuing mission the dissemination of the fruits of research and creative activity.
Founded in 1999, The Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to fostering, promoting and preserving the creative and essential business of words. Its mission is to explore the impact of words on human experience and to provide creative opportunities and uninterrupted time for human expression.
The Ozark Mountains motivate writers inspired by the abundance of inconvenience and vigor of self-reliance, the allure of splendor, and the irony of sophisticated rural life. These writers provide the backbone of Boian Books. Our goal is to offer quality reading to those who favor uncommon perspectives. Priority is given to authors with shrewd insight and an appreciation of those who populate the wild and lovely Ozarks. We prefer writers who are easy to get along with, and don’t publish books that make us nervous.
