Champlain Publishing Announces “Publishing: Digitized and Personalized”

Please plan to join the students, faculty, staff and alumni who make up the Champlain College Publishing Initiative on Friday, Feb. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Center for Communication and Creative Media’s Art Gallery, at Champlain College for the launch of our latest book.

Publishing: Digitized and Personalized is an anthology of essays written by Champlain students and alumni that examines modern-day publishing strategies and innovations from the student perspective. This book has been written, edited, designed, and produced by Champlain College students, is being published by Champlain Alumna Colleen Rooney ’16, and is sponsored by the Champlain College Publishing Initiative.

Publishing: Digitized and Personalized begins with Jeremy Allmendinger’s hilarious history of the publishing industry and moves quickly through several enlightening assessments of latter-day book marketing, including Kristin Orlando’s take on “stalkertizing.” It includes, among other great pieces on publishing, Tristan Lozuaway-McComsey’s treatise on educational fair use policies, and Colleen Lloyd’s clear-eyed comparisons of self-publishing v. traditional publishing that will help elucidate the pertinent issues for anyone considering this choice, no matter what the stage of their career.

Current student author Jessica Demarest of Champlain College Publishing Initiative will be on hand for a panel discussion with Editor Rooney, who spearheaded the project while she was a senior at Champlain, and author/former Champlain Publishing MVP Taylor Covington. Rooney and Covington plan to video-call into the discussion from Florida and Texas, respectively.

This event is free and open to the public, and books will be available for purchase.

The Communication & Creative Media Speaker Series and the Champlain College Publishing Initiative are pleased to present “An Evening with Kim Addonizio: Poetry & Memoir,” Monday, October 3, at 7:00 p.m. in the Alumni Auditorium.
