Founded in 2012 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jump! publishes children’s nonfiction with a focus on curriculum-aligned subjects for emergent through early-fluent readers. Our books combine vibrant colors with captivating photography and corresponding text to draw readers into the subject and encourage reading success.Jump! is dedicated to improving literacy and enriching children’s lives. We strive to accomplish this by publishing great content that makes reading fun, inspires curiosity about the world, and ultimately leads to a lifetime of learning.Children open books in hopes of seeing their own lives, interests, and experiences within the pages. It is this perspective that drives every choice we make when creating our books.
We aspire to strengthen each person's confidence by employment opportunities and distributing popular titles to your doorstep hopefully encouraging your family to retain the skill of reading hard copy magazines that you can hold in your hand, instead of looking at a screen like you are now.
We also support various programs and community outreach efforts by helping with entry level TSR positions for Students, Homemakers and Retirees of any age.
Wherever you may be on your spiritual path, at Midwest publishers you will find a supportive community with a wealth of opportunities for personal growth.
Following meetings of members of the Minnesota Department of Trade and Economic Development and forward-thinking publishing executives, Minnesota Magazine & Publishing Association (MMPA) was formed in January 1995.
One of the publishers in the forefront was Steve Hedlund who said, “Several of us had been meeting informally for a few years, and we agreed that all publishers in the state could benefit from an organized group.”Throughout the last two decades, MMPA has produced some of the best educational events available, which grew into the annual Summit & Expo. Other initiatives have been added, including the annual Excellence Awards program.

Univocal Publishing was founded by Jason Wagner and Drew Burk as an independent publishing house specializing in artisanal editions and translations of texts spanning the areas of cultural theory, media archaeology, continental philosophy, aesthetics, anthropology, and more. In May 2017, Univocal ceased operations as an independent publishing house and became a series with its publishing partner the University of Minnesota Press. Amazingly enough, even in this early work, from 1965, we are finding rhizomes of his latter theories fully connected to contemporary digital discourse, as for example his definition of metaphysics; "there must be a computer that is the computer of all computers" (p. 62/3).
In 1963, Pastor Paul Keller discovered he was unable to find very much in the way of Christian bereavement writings to give to his congregation in times of grief and suffering. So Pastor Keller began the task of writing many booklets of help for the suffering; those suffering from the loss of a loved one; the loss of a child; recovery from addictions; help for the divorced; advice for those trying to help the suffering; how to deal with the many feelings people experience and help for those working with the sick and hospitalized.
Soon Pastor Keller was selling these help to churches, hospitals, mortuaries, and many individuals. His wife, Florence, was at his side to serve to the many people and thus began Kairos Publishing. For 45 years they served many Christians across the country and the world.
“Within my rich oral-tradition childhood, elders and kin prepared me, guided me, and gave me a way to value how life can come into a correct relationship when a person will respectfully listen. I believe people can learn to listen. Stories help us to remember joyously, even as the songs, stories, and tellers change. In the heart of every being there is a “listener” who is hungry, thirsty, and possibly crippled. Listeners all want one thing: something to hope for. Something that will satisfy a gnawing hunger, quench a deep thirst, heal and restore life. Even in an immensely dark time, against seemingly impossible odds, hope flickers. It may be a tiny flame, yes, yet a flame can be kindled, making a small fire to come close to and enjoy.
