Director Message

It is my pleasure to present to you the rebranded, revamped and renewed UiTM Press. Albeit the changes in looks and management, the core of our business remains- quality books, for business and pleasure.

When I received news in 2018 that I was going to lead the press, I knew from the start that the challenges I will face would be immense. Publishing today is a 180 degrees different from how it was yesterday, with the emergence of e-publication and now in audio channels. But as I set foot at the press for the first time, I was amazed at how insanely hardworking and dedicated the team is in turning all the raw manuscripts they receive into books that are sought after by students and the society at large. Believe me when I say that the inflow of manuscripts is sometimes overwhelming, but in the spirit of camaraderie, we will do our utmost best.

Aggressive marketing is another way of reaching out to the public. The conventional method of selling in book shops is not discarded, only this time our books are also sold via e- commerce platforms, namely Shopee and Lazada. Log on to MindAppz.Com for the digital version of our books, with more e-book platforms still in our review.

Helping us in making sure the writing and publishing culture in UiTM continue to flourish are the publication coordinators. They are our publishing agents for potential and aspiring authors at every faculty and campus to consult with on everything publishing.

Of course, I have my predecessors to thank, for leaving behind great legacy and foundation for me and my team to bring reading and learning pleasure to another level. On that note, I hope you will find your experience with UiTM Press INSPIRING, STIMULATING and EDUCATING.
