Production materials of Momentum Press, a Santa Monica, California, literary press operated by writer and editor William Mohr between 1974 and 1985. Materials include correspondence, manuscripts and production proofs for numerous monographic works by Los Angeles poets, typescripts and paste-ups for Momentum magazine, submissions of literary work, and materials for Momentum Press's two poetry anthologies, Poetry Loves Poetry: An Anthology of Los Angeles Poets and Streets Inside: Ten Los Angeles Poets. Also included are writings by Bill Mohr, documentation of his editiorial work on Bachy magazine and videorecordings of a television series hosted and produced by Mohr entitled Put Your Ears On.

Momentum Press was founded by poet William Mohr in 1973 when he served as poetry editor for BACHY, another Los Angeles poetry magazine, in 1972-1973. Established in association with the Century City Educational Arts Project, a non-profit group based in Los Angeles, Momentum Press published eight issues of the magazine Momentum between 1974-1978 and, between 1975-1988, books by numerous writers living in or associated with Los Angeles, including Kate Braverman, Leland Hickman, Michael Kincaid, Harry Northrup, Alicia Ostriker, and Holly Prado. Additionally, Momentum published two seminal anthologies edited by Mohr, The Streets Inside: Ten Los Angeles Poets (1975) and Poetry Loves Poetry: An Anthology of Los Angeles Poets (1985).

When Momentum Press ceased publication for financial reasons in 1988, Mohr produced and hosted Put Your Ears On, a television poetry and performance events series recorded at the Century City Educational Arts Project studios. The series included readings and/or performances by Will Alexander, Leland Hickman, James Krusoe, Phoebe MacAdams, Harry Northrup, and Holly Prado, among others.

The MOMENTUM PRESS ARCHIVE consists of material related to Momentum magazine, the publication of Momentum Press books, Put Your Ears On video series, and, to a lesser extent, the writing career of poet and editor William Mohr. The archive is arranged in five series: 1) CORRESPONDENCE, 2) MOMENTUM PRESS, 3) MISCELLANEOUS MATERIALS, 4) EDITING AND WRITING BY MOHR, and 5) PUT YOUR EARS ON.
