Bronze Man Books
A student-owned and operated press located on Millikin University's campus, Bronze Man Books is dedicated to integrating quality design and meaningful content. The company exposes undergraduate students to the process of publishing by combining the theory of writing, publishing, editing and designing with the practice of running a book publishing company. This emphasis on performance learning is a hallmark of Millikin's brand of education.
Bronze Man Books originated from the Art of Publishing course created by Dr. Randy Brooks, dean of Millikin's College of Arts & Sciences, and Dr. Edwin Walker, Associate Professor of Art, in spring 2006. Within the first semester, Bronze Man Books was established as an official press in name, mission, and legality. Its first publication was Ants in the Band Room, a children's book written by Millikin alumna Laura Podeschi. Since then, Bronze Man Books has published a number of books on poetry, art, and plays.
Each semester, senior members of the company and faculty advisors interview interested students. Those who enter the class understand the dedication and professionalism required to maintain integrity of the business. Students have the option of working on the design, editorial, or marketing team. Like any small business, the Bronze Man Books staff maintains a high level of correspondence and assistance to ensure stability and high spirits among the teams and company.
