MPA Bulletin


The Missouri Press Bulletin began in March of 1938. The monthly bulletin is produced by MPA Editor Matthew Barba at the Association’s office in Columbia.

Past issues of the monthly Bulletin are available for public perusal during regular business hours at the MPA office. You can link below to Bulletins from 2003 to the present.

Missouri Press ceased mailing hard copies of the monthly Bulletin at the end of 2012. Since then it has emailed links to the Bulletin on the Missouri Press website and to a digital version of the Bulletin administered by Dirxion.
