Get a taste of publishing at Kingston


On Friday April 25th the Kingston MA Publishing team will be hosting a Publishing Taster Day for anyone interested in a career in publishing.

Publishing is a fast-moving business that thrives on creativity and collaboration. With over 100,000 books published each year in the UK alone, publishing contributes more to the British economy than any other creative industry.

Publishing is all about creating concepts, making products and sharing them with readers whenever and wherever they want them. From books and magazines to apps and websites, publishers of the future need excellent product development, consumer marketing and digital technology skills. To succeed in this global business you will also need great organisational and communication skills, outstanding attention to detail and the ability to work effectively with others. And because no-one quite knows what the future of publishing holds, the best publishers will be those who can think critically and embrace and exploit new challenges.

At the Kingston Publishing Taster Day you will have the opportunity to put your own creative and critical thinking skills to the test within a publishing context. You’ll meet the teaching staff (who are all experienced publishers) and the wider support team and also be able to check out the resources available to Kingston students.
