Paige Jordan has been accepted to the Summer Publishing Institute at New York University. The Summer Publishing Institute is a six-week, intensive program that provides its students with the opportunity to study the fundamentals of magazine and book publishing as well as cutting-edge publishing technology. Leading executives in the publishing industry will give lectures to SPI students and offer guidance and feedback in workshops and strategy sessions. Confirmed speakers include the CEO of one of the “Big Five” publishing companies and the publisher of the Divergent/Insurgent series. SPI students also receive extensive professional guidance and networking opportunities. The Summer Publishing Institute is a fantastic opportunity to immerse oneself in both the publishing industry and in the media capital of the world – New York City!
After the Summer Publishing Institute, Paige will head to Emerson College to work toward her M.A. in Publishing and Writing. Located in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, Emerson College is internationally recognized for its strong academic program devoted to communication and the arts. The M.A. in Publishing and Writing program uniquely focuses on writing as being both an artistic pursuit and a business endeavor, and students in the program thus have the opportunity to study in-depth both the business and marketing side of publishing and the creative, literary side. Boston is home to many major book publishers, including Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Beacon Press, Da Capo Press, Bedford/St. Martin’s, and Pearson, and countless publishing internship opportunities are made available to M.A. students through Emerson’s connections to these industry giants.
