Welcome back for the Fall 2015 semester!
I hope you all had a wonderful summer and that you are ready for an exciting semester in the MS in Publishing program!
Be sure to check out the blog daily as we are always updating it with great information. We start off each week with an inspiring Quote of the Week. Other regular weekly features include: The Link of the Week, Jobs of the Week, and Around Town: Books and Magazine Events in NYC. We also post monthly Alumni in the Spotlight Interviews, Faculty/Advisory Board in the Spotlight features as well as our Media Roundups and Reports from the Trenches (we love to have students blog about field trips, guest lectures, books or magazines they have read etc. so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to contribute) and Volunteer and Events postings.
In addition, we also post numerous Internship and Employment opportunities so be sure to bookmark the blog. As you embark on your internship search don’t forget to go to the Internship Resources tab (http://mspub.blogs.pace.edu/internship-resources/).There are great links here to assist you with your search.
The blog also includes Faculty and Staff Bios —a great way to learn more about the backgrounds and accomplishments of your professors (http://mspub.blogs.pace.edu/faculty-and-staff-bios/ )! In addition, the Publishing Links that run along the left side of the blog are also a great resource for networking and additional educational opportunities.
This semester we also have a number of great events on campus for you to attend including an on-site visit to the new HarperCollins (http://www.harpercollins.com/) offices on November 17th (details to follow)) and a fascinating panel on Women Writing About the Environment on Nov. 11th at Pace’s downtown campus (details to follow) and co-sponsored by the WNBA (http://wnba-nyc.org/). Mark your calendars!
I would also like to take this time to thank you for your contributions to and feedback on the blog and we hope that you are finding it to be a useful resource. Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any suggestions or comments you have. We love to hear from you and are always looking for new ways to provide you with useful information. And, for students interested in getting putting together some writing samples, putting together a post for the blog is a great way to do that.
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful semester!
Executive Director of Internships and Corporate Outreach
