Now before anyone gets too heated. I’d unequivocally say yes in my case, for a digital publishing program in particular they most certainly are if you study epub + web design. But this lovely post does not actually live here on Foodie By Night, remember way back when I mentioned I was going to be published? Well my essay is now live in the latest version of the Journal of Electronic Publishing!
I’m featured with a number of other fabulous and talented people in a special issue all about Education and Training for 21st Century Publishers. My essay details my personal experiences in a Digital Publishing program at a predominately print publishing school, the politics, the challenges the programs face, and the leaps and bounds that the program took in evolving their program for a fast-paced digital world. I even threw in a few tips on choosing a program of your own. And of course I talked about the print publishing side as well (hey they deserve a shout out too)!
So mosey on over to my essay Graduate Programs in Publishing: Are they worth it? and let me know what you think! What was helpful? What would you like more information on? I’m all ears.
Foodies: Bear with me, there’s welcome news on the horizon for you (I’m aware that this blog has become very tech).
