Stephen Hull is the director of the University of New Mexico Press. Hull has had a thirty-five year career in book publishing, the last nine as editor and publisher at the University Press of New England, at Dartmouth College. Hull began his career with the college division of Little, Brown & Co., before moving to Allyn & Bacon, a division of Simon and Schuster.

With independent publisher Zoland Books, Inc., Hull worked with important novelists, poets, and nonfiction writers, including Ha Jin, Sheila Kohler, Kevin Young, André Brink, and many others.

In 2002 he left to found the independent trade publisher Justin, Charles & Co.

At the University Press of New England Hull founded several new series including “Seafaring America,” publishing original works, reissues, and anthologies bearing on America’s maritime heritage; and ForeEdge Books, a new imprint of general interest nonfiction with regional roots and national resonance. Since 2014 ForeEdge has grown to publish twenty-four titles a year in history, politics, science, music, and sports.
