I hope you all had a relaxing holiday and that you are ready for an exciting spring semester in the MS in Publishing program!

professor-denningBe 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.

The blog has also been updated to include Faculty and Staff Bios—a great way to learn more about the backgrounds and accomplishments of your professors (see tab at the top of the blog)!  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. The Internship Resources tab is regularly updated in order to provide students with direct links to internship opportunities.

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 (jdenning@pace.edu) 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!
