Lisa Minney founded Stumptown Publishing LLC in 2007. The company produced Two-Lane Livin’ Magazine, which served as the largest grassroots publication in West Virginia for more than a decade.  The magazine consistently maintained a 99% average readership rate while in production, and featured more than 22 volunteer columnists.

Stumptown Publishing now offers writing services, print services, publishing services, and writing workshops & retreats–online and in person. Our online writing and publishing courses are launching in 2020, and we have three books available through our bookstore.

We have the capability to produce small runs of spiral-bound, saddle stitch, and perfect-bound books. We prefer to work with recycled, hand-made, and natural fiber papers and Appalachian authors.

Stumptown Publishing also offers custom-created prints, invitations, and cards produced with vintage manual typewriters. Typewriter fonts featured are from the 1930’s, 1950’s, 1960’s, and 1970’s. Lisa is also currently working on a new line of altered book journals for writing, art, meditation, and prayer.

Current book projects include The Basics of Tent Camping; Two-Lane Favorites; and 50 Years in the Forest.


Stumptown Publishing will also soon be re-releasing four books previously published by Lisa including The Seasons of Audra State Park: Spring; Thus Far; Calhoun County Christmas Sampler; and Gilmer County Christmas Sampler.

Design, print and binding services are available.
