PublicsLab / Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Workshop 2021 Summer Fellowship

The LA Review of Books Summer Publishing Workshop is an intensive, five-week (virtual) summer course on book, magazine, and online publishing held from 27 June to 30 July 2021. Through lectures, seminars, and practical instruction conducted remotely, participants learn the foundations of print and online editing and production; gain insight into the financial and business side of publishing; and connect with over 60 industry leaders from across the country working in all areas of traditional and new media publishing.

For too long, publishing has been inaccessible to all but a small segment of the population and the result has been a lack of diversity at every level of the profession. The LARB Publishing Workshop aims to transform the industry from the ground up through its commitments to recruiting students underrepresented in the publishing industry; to prioritizing student financial aid; and to celebrating independent presses, outlets, and platforms throughout the country that are changing the face of publishing today.

All Graduate Center PhD students in the humanities or humanistic social sciences are invited to apply. The selected Graduate Center fellow will receive full tuition. Upon completion of the publishing workshop, they will share what they learned with the PublicsLab community. Check out Sara Cordon’s blog post from the 2019 Publishing Workshop!

Applicants should apply directly through the Publishing Workshop website no later than 20 March 2021.
