The University of Tampa Press

Founded in 1952, The University of Tampa Press is dedicated to publishing books and journals featuring poetry, prose, and scholarship from Florida and around the globe. The University launched its literary journal UT Poetry Review in 1964, which evolved into Tampa Review in 1988. It is the oldest continuously published literary journal in Florida. Additionally, UT Press published the award-winning academic journal Pinter Review, which was devoted to the work of Nobel laureate Harold Pinter. 

Today, UT Press aims to publish trade and scholarly books focusing on Florida art, culture, and history, especially from African American, Latinx, or Indigenous perspectives. The Press also seeks to publish scholarship in global studies, translations of fantastic works, Florida field guides, and creative work in experimental forms, such as cross-genre, multimedia, and short format work.
