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.

Western Writers Online (Department of English)

Western Writers Online was a short-lived peer-reviewed journal and research hub devoted to authoritative, accessible scholarship on the writers of the North American West.

In 2015, we migrated our four scholarly articles here to Boise State University’s Scholarworks for archiving. Articles are available for free download by clicking on titles below. Western Writers Online was sponsored by Boise State University, a project of the Hemingway Western Studies Center and the BSU Digital Humanities initiative. WWO inherited the scholarly mission of the Boise State University Western Writers Series (1972-2006), a publisher of booklet-length introductions to western writers.
