About The Muriel Press
The Muriel Press is an embedded micro-press at Marian University, where students gain hands-on skills in editing, book design, marketing & public relations through an internship-in-the-classroom. Through a multi-course sequence delivered through the English, Art, and Communication programs, students take books from submission to finished project, working with the author to design a social media launch and the book’s release.
In its naming, the press honors Sr. Muriel Tarr who taught art, music, and English, and was a poet & translator. In keeping with the mission of Marian University, the Muriel Press will publish works of contemporary literature from Upper Midwestern authors with a social justice focus.
Code of Ethics
To adhere as closely as possible to best practices and Council of Literary Magazines and Press’s (CLMP) code of ethics, The Muriel Press will read submissions blind, and exclude close friends, relatives, students, and former students of current Marian University faculty.
