Get into Book Publishing is a new, 4-day course designed to be a comprehensive and accessible introduction to publishing for those new to the industry.
The course will provide a complete overview of the industry and an expert insight into the main roles within it. From editorial and design, to production, sales and marketing, the course is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the business, not only to help identify the area that’s right for you but also to provide you with some basic skills to improve your chances of employment.
Supported by The Publishers Association, Hachette and Penguin Random House, and presented by experts from across publishing, the course will be a lively, practical and relevant look at the industry as it stands today. It will feature interactive seminar sessions and a group project to consider some of the key issues currently facing the industry. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate from UCL to acknowledge your achievement.
The course will include an evening drinks reception so that everyone has the opportunity to meet industry figures in a more relaxed environment.
It is aimed at those who have little or no prior knowledge of the publishing industry or as a refresher course. If you are an intern, a school, college or university leaver, returning to work or perhaps considering a change of career, then this course represents an ideal starting point.
There are no entry requirements for the course, although delegates must be aged over 18 years. Cost per ticket £200.
