Ooligan Press

Start to Finish

Ooligan Press exists in two worlds: the world of independent presses, and the world of student presses. As an independent press, Ooligan strives to bring the stories of authors to the public, whether they are stories of imagination or stories of realities both everyday and incredible. As a student press, Ooligan has an obligation to another kind of author and another kind of story. The authors here are a group of motivated individuals and their story is one of collaboration and growth as they learn to operate in the world of publishing.

Project Start to Finish is an initiative meant to combine these two worlds into one story—the story of each book published at Ooligan Press. By clicking on the titles below, you can view weekly updates from project managers on all of our current in-process titles, following their progress from “Start to Finish.” You can see how the press is involved in bringing an author’s work to life, and be present for every step—every twist and turn—in the incredible journey of a published work.

Note: because the Start to Finish project began in Summer 2012, only works that were not published prior to that date are represented. You can read more about its creation and benefits on our blog. The project has also been featured in Publisher’s Weekly.
