The National Amateur

 

 
The National Amateur is the quarterly journal (“official organ”) of the National Amateur Press Association. It has been published since 1878, two years after the organization’s founding. It brings organizational news, such as the minutes of the Annual Convention, regular reports of the officers, and such other material as the Official Editor chooses. The position of Official Editor is one of the most important roles within the NAPA.
