Women in the U.S. have been pioneering printers, publishers, teachers, editors, journalists, and librarians from colonial times to the present day, blazing trails despite inequities of opportunity. Our literary community is much richer for their diverse contributions. Join our distinguished panelists as they discuss the strategies that they and literary women have used to overcome barriers.

Welcome back to Pace University |

Professor Jane Denning


Welcome back to the Fall 2017 Semester,

I hope you all had a restful summer break and that you are ready for an exciting semester in the M.S. in Publishing program!

Be sure to check out the blog daily as we are always updating it with great information for M.S. in Publishing students and alumni. 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, 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.

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 (Book and Magazine) tab on the blog. We have been working hard to update this resource and there are great links here to assist you with your search. We are also in the process of developing a robust Career Resources tab on the blog that will host useful information on resume and cover letter writing and job searching and networking, so check back often! And, if you are looking to do an internship and take PUB 699A and B, please email me anytime at jdenning@pace.edu to set up a time to meet.

The blog also includes our Faculty and Staff Bios—a great way to learn more about the backgrounds and accomplishments of your professors and publishing staff! The Publishing Links that run along the right side of the blog are also a great resource for students and publishing professionals.

I would also like to take this time to thank you for your future contributions to and feedback on the blog. We hope that you are finding it a useful resource. Please feel free to email me with any suggestions or comments.

We love to hear from you and are always looking for new ways to provide you with useful information. And, for students interested in publishing some writing samples, putting together a post for the blog is a great way to do that.

With best regards,

Carla Hayden & Louise Erdrich Honored With WNBA Awards

Carla Hayden and Louise Erdrich

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden and novelist, poet, and bookstore owner Louise Erdrich have both been named winners of the 2017 Women’s National Book Association Awards.

Usually awarded to one person a year, the WNBA decided to present the award to two people this year in honor of their centennial. Hayden was awarded for her involvement in the business of books and Erdrich for her involvement in the creation of them.

Jane Kinney-Denning, WNBA National President, said, “These two women, via their work, have made significant cultural and societal contributions [that] are deserving of this prestigious award.”

Hayden and Erdrich will be honored at the WNBA’s centennial celebration on October 28 in New York.
