Publishing at the London Book Fair 2009

The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies (OICPS) had a stand at the London Book Fair 20-22 April 2009. It was an excellent opportunity to meet many of our alumni who were working with their own companies at the fair, as well as many of our publishing contacts in the UK and international industries. Current students were greatly in evidence, wearing OICPS T-shirts and helping to run the Fair's seminar programme. Several students also helped out at the stand for the Independent Publishers Guild. We were busy throughout the Fair and, for example, hosted three well-attended seminars and hosted a party for our alumni.

Publishing students visit Bloomsbury

Students from the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies recently visited Bloomsbury plc at the invitation of Industry Advisory Board member and Deputy Managing Director of A & C Black, Jonathan Glasspool.
