The HarperCollins Site Visit

HC headquarers

On Wednesday, November 11th Pace students visited the HarperCollins Headquarters in New York. The students were greeted by Human Resources Director, Carolyn Zimatore and led to a conference room. At every seat there were HarperCollins water bottles and a book waiting for every student. After an overview of the different publishing departments and how they collaborate Zimatore passed the presentation onto Sara Sargent, the executive editor for HarperCollins Children.

Sargent answered student’s questions and spoke about the trends in children’s books. Next up was Brian Perrin, Marketing and Digital Product Development. Perrin spoke about working in book marketing and working with an editor to position a book. They both discussed the duties of an entry-level position in marketing and editorial and what you can expect. The last speaker was Brianne Fong, an Assistant Manager, Digital Rights. Fong’s team negotiates eBook rights for backlist titles at HarperCollins. She spoke in detail about the work behind acquiring rights and how digital rights create a new audience for backlist titles.

Students gained valuable information from these amazing speakers and were able to see a major publishing house in person. Thank you HarperCollins for the wonderful experience.
