From Abu Dhabi to Athens, Shanghai to Sao Paulo, and from all over the United States, The Yale Publishing Course – Leadership Strategies in Magazine and Digital Publishing, and Leadership Strategies in Book Publishing – brings mid-to senior level publishing professionals to the Ivy League campus every summer for five intensive days of lectures on industry trends and challenges, case studies, hands-on sessions involving active class participation, and one-on-one counseling with guest speakers.
Joining CCC’s Chris Kenneally from New Haven with a preview of the 2013 session is Tina Weiner, Yale Publishing Course founder and director. Before taking her latest role at Yale, Tina Weiner was the Publishing Director of Yale University Press, one of the largest American university presses. During her tenure, Weiner was instrumental in forging co-publishing and distribution arrangements with many art museums in the U.S. and abroad; she was also the liaison with YUP’s London office.
In 2012, Kenneally visited the YPC’s book publishing program, where he learned from Kirsty Melville, President and Publisher, Andrews McMeel Universal, about an intriguing copyright challenge for cartoonist-humorist Matthew Inman, creator of the hit Web feature, “The Oatmeal.” Check out that interview here.
