This module provides an introduction to the fast-changing world of publishing, and different ways of working with words, anchored in an understanding of past and current trends. Through directed readings and practical assignments, it looks behind the public face of texts to understand the steps that occur after an author 'finishes' a text. Students have unique access to the practical workings of our in-house imprint, Fincham Press.
