Join the staff of the Los Angeles Review of Books for a conversation about careers in publishing after graduate school. LARB staff--who hold humanities PhDs--will offer advice about how to build careers in publishing as current graduate students, discuss the Los Angeles Review of Books more broadly, and share from their own experiences of moving into publishing and literary arts nonprofit work from academia.

The representatives from LARB will be Irene Yoon (Executive Director of LARB) and Lindsay Wright (Director of the LARB Publishing Workshop). Caroline McKusick, associate editor at Stanford University Press, PhD in anthropology from UC Davis, and alum of the publishing workshop, will also join. 

This is also an Information Session about the LA Review of Books Publishing Workshop. This is a competitive opportunity for Stanford seniors or graduate students in any field who are interested in the publishing industry.

The Publishing Workshop is an intensive month-long summer course held virtually. The program runs from June 24–July 26, 2024. Applications are due by April 1, 2024. 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.

Today, how we tell our stories matters more than ever. The platforms we use, the audiences we reach, and the shape of the ideas we share are revolutionizing the publishing industry. The LARB Publishing Workshop prepares our Fellows to enter this evolving landscape. Our goal is to build the future of publishing, student by student, idea by idea, innovation by innovation.
