About the Program:
Not every book is created equal, but every publishing house is. Maybe not in the same exact manner, but rather in a structure that focuses on budget planning, talent management, strategic marketing, legal understandings, production planning, and business operations, to name a few. This session will uncover the basic infrastructure of what goes into operating a press.
This session will provide tools and insights that may help you save your publishing dreams from disaster and prevent unexpected roadblocks to happen. With a new publishing press as an example, participants will be introduced to a macro analysis and road map of what it takes to start and operate a publishing press in the United States.
If you’re thinking about or trying to understand the ways of managing a press, then this is a great educational workshop for you. Or, if you’re curious about what you should understand of how a press is held together join in on this fast-paced, informative session. And remember, a book might never see light of day if there is no foundation to its creation.
A recording of this session will be made available to IBPA members on June 15, 2017. Please check back for details.
