Children's Publishing (including MG and YA)

For many aspiring publishing professionals, working with children's, middle grade or young adult literature is a dream come true. The program offers Children's Books as an area of focus , with courses including "Libraries and K-12 Trade Publishing" and "Children's Picture Books." Specialized courses in writing for Young Adult and Middle Grade readers are offered by the the MFA in Creative Writing program, and students pursuing the Double Degree in Creative Writing and Publishing can take advantage of these courses in both programs.


If your interests lie in design or social media,  you can take courses with a digital focus such as Design 1: Digital Foundations, "Marketing and Promoting Books" and "Branding and Social Media." By covering the latest and most-commonly used tools like Adobe InDesign, and by studying marketing and promotion across several channels, you'll gain skills you will need for digital tasks in the publishing industry.


Understanding contracts, managing resources, gathering data to make informed decisions, supervising and coordinating with co-workers and others—an editor’s work goes well beyond the page. Courses such as "Small Press Practices," "Role of the Literary Agent," and "Editorial Roles in Publishing" show you editorial work from different depths and perspectives, allowing you to learn the concepts and skills needed to manage a project from its initial concept to publication.

Programme Structure

In a survey of recent alumni we found that 94% of respondents were employed full-time in publishing or a publishing-related field after graduating from the program. Students who interned during their time in the program were similarly employed at a 97% rate. Our program's professors work in publishing, and they provide practical expertise and vital connections to relevant organizations. In the past, publishing students have participated in a variety of internships at companies including Macmillan (NYC), Philadelphia Weekly, and Simon & Schuster, among others.
