Tim McCreight

Brynmorgen Press was formed in 1981 after its President and Senior Editor, Tim McCreight, had published two books with commercial publishers. Tim thought he might enjoy getting involved in the design and production aspects of publishing and apparently he was right. Three decades later he's still writing, designing, and illustrating books.

For many years Tim ran the company from his home while teaching full time. In 2008 the company moved and expanded to take on a range of editorial and consulting services. They are located outside the small town of Brunswick in mid-coast Maine, USA. Their name comes from the middle names of Tim and Jay's children, Johanna Bryn and Jeffrey Morgen.

Many of the books published by Brynmorgen Press are authored or edited by Tim. He is a metalsmith, designer, author, and teacher. He received a BA from the College of Wooster in 1973 and an MFA from Bowling Green State University in 1975. He taught for twelve years at the Center for Crafts in Worcester, Massachusetts, and for the next fifteen years at Maine College of Art in Portland.

Tim has been working in metals since 1970 and along the way has published more than a dozen books and made several DVDs. He served a term as President of the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) and has been on the boards of Haystack, the American Craft Council and the PMC Guild. He has taught workshops in the United States, UK, Canada, Mexico and Japan.

Tim continues to write for several magazines and consults for industry.
