ACP’s Publishing 101 Webinar and Discussion Series is a new program providing basic publishing knowledge and practices to new publishers and junior staff at publishing companies—anyone working in the industry interested in learning more about the business side of publishing. Publishing 101 aims to be approachable, provide expertise from trusted sources within the industry, and extend professional development opportunities beyond ACP’s usual general meetings. The series also will provide a forum for fledgling industry professionals to discuss their own experiences and perspectives.
The inaugural Publishing 101 series will be delivered in seven 60-minute sessions every Tuesday at 2:00 pm EDT, from October 20 to December 1. Session leads will present for the first half of the session time, followed by a moderated Q&A discussion. The curriculum will, in part, be influenced by registrant questions: please note in section 2 of the registration form (linked below) what questions you have for each lead regarding the session topic(s). ACP will also survey participants one week in advance for any final questions to address during the Q&A section.
Participation in the Publishing 101 series will be free of charge and open to both ACP and non-ACP members. We ask that registrants commit to attending all the webinars for the value of content, information transferring between sessions, and to promote connections between participants. Registrant applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to approximately 30 participants total.
Registration closes Friday, October 2, 2020 at 5:00 pm EDT. Please see below a preview for each week’s session. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jazz Cook, Membership Services Coordinator.
