Introducing the MS in PUBLISHING BLOG at Pace University!

The publishing program is excited to introduce the MS in Publishing blog aimed at connecting students, professors, and alumni.

Students, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to contribute to the site – a writing sample, a review of books, music, or a movie, an article or analysis of a current industry trend, a recent accomplishment, as well as personal news.

The blog will give students a way to publish their work and alumni can connect back to the program and offer advice and professional guidance to students currently enrolled.

The MS in Publishing blog is a bi-weekly blog that creates awareness about the publishing program for students and alumni. Our goal for the blog is to give readers up-to-date information about news and events, as well as give students, faculty, and alumni a forum to talk about the industry and their work (in the program and professionally).

Topics Include:
Internships
Events
Students Profiles
Alumni and faculty news
Current industry trends
