Yale Publishing Course
Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut
July 13th to 18th (magazines), and 20th to 25th (books), 2014
In 2010, Yale took over the magazine and book publishing course that Stanford University had hosted for some 30 years. I always looked forward to going to sunny California (especially Palo Alto, where Leland Stanford built the University in memory of his son Leland Jr. Stanford senior certainly knew how to pick the right spot to build!) I lectured there for 28 years.
The Yale course is beautifully run by Tina Weiner, who split it up into two intense weeks of lectures: the first week is devoted to magazines (both digital and what’s left of print), and the second week to books in all their various forms. I speak to both groups. Exact dates for my lectures are not finalized yet.
