The Future Is Here

This is an update on previous posts concerning the termination of the Stanford Professional Publishing Course (SPPC) and the decision by Yale University to begin its course. The previous posts are now filed in the blog archive. 

Yale Publishing Course - July 18-23, 2010

The good news is that the Yale Publishing Course, announced on March 28, 2010 as a successor to the SPPC, will convene as planned in the new state of the art Greenburg meeting complex on the Yale campus and take place from July 18-23. The curriculum calls for a week of intensive sessions dealing with the leadership challenges in magazine, book and digital publishing.

In less that four months from the decision made in late March, the director, Tina Weiner, assisted by the advisory committee, developed the program and selected a faculty of forty-three industry leaders and technology experts as well as members of the Yale University teaching faculty. And, at the same time, students were recruited (thirty percent will come from outside the United States) to fill the auditorium and meeting rooms of the complex. 

Great credit is due to Yale, its director, and the advisory committee that enabled this unique course to continue without interruption, enabling leaders in publishing to bring the future to the present.
