Ahsahta Press (Department of English)Ahsahta Press, a not-for-profit literary publisher, was founded at Boise State University in 1974 to preserve the best works by early poets of the American West, including many underpublished women poets. Beginning with the works of "Objectivist" writer Norman Macleod in 1975, poetry by Peggy Pond Church, H.L. Davis, Hazel Hall, Gwendolen Haste, Haniel Long, Genevieve Taggard and others was restored to print. Ahsahta Press editors Dale Boyer, Orvis Burmaster, and Tom Trusky soon added works by contemporary Western poets to their list, including David Baker, Linda Bierds, Richard Blessing, Wyn Cooper, Gretel Ehrlich, Ken McCullough, and Carolyne Wright. The Modern and Contemporary Poets of the American West series was continued until 2002, when The New Series was established under the editorship of Janet Holmes. It comprised 56 titles, of which 45 are contained in ScholarWorks.
