What to Expect

The Publishing Workshop is an intensive five-week virtual summer course. The program runs from Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. (PST), with occasional evening events to follow. Group events take place on Zoom and fellows communicate with each other, LARB staff, and speakers on dedicated Slack channels.

Each day will include a mixture of lectures, discussions, and one-on-one appointments with industry professionals; topical seminars; and practical skills-based workshops in the fundamentals of book and magazine production. Workshop Fellows are strongly encouraged to attend all workshop sessions and events. In doing so, participants can expect to gain a thorough overview of the publishing industry and new insights, skills, and connections that will help them identify how and where they may fit within it. For accessibility purposes, video recordings of workshop sessions are available to participants on demand.


June 20 - July 22, 2022


The program is open to graduating college seniors, those who have already graduated (alumni of any college or university), current graduate students, or people with significant relevant experience.
