About Us

Who Are We

Welcome to EM Press! Thanks for stopping by, and we’d love to be an addition to your bookmark list.

A little bit about us: EM Press was founded by Mark Eleveld and Ron Maruszak, two high school English teachers interested in spreading contemporary voices in cutting edge literature among a wide and diverse audience. Influenced by the literary philosophy of Slam Poetry founder Marc Smith, and grounded in the classical roots of the English cannon, EM Press seeks to print, reprint, and translate writings of very high quality. Simply put, EM Press still finds strands of truths in literature, we are simply trying to spread those strands.

What We Do


Em Press is a small press that publishes one to two titles a year.  We also release spoken word CDs.  And recently released our first music CD.


Poets & Profs:  Looking at the Iliad, is our first film that that explores Homer’s Iliad as a spoken word piece, as well as its comtemporary themes.
